Homework & Discipline Policy

Clip It! Behavior Chart


Our classroom will use a clip chart to monitor behavior. A clip chart is a great tool that allows students to be rewarded for positive behavior, while discouraging negative behavior.


Each student has a clothespin, or clip, with his or her name on it. Everyone will start the day on green and clips can be moved up or down throughout the day based on behavior.


Students will move to the Good Choices level for showing that they are making the right behavior decisions. Ending the day on this level is great!


Every student will start the day on the green, Ready to Learn level. As the day goes on, clips can be moved up and down, based on behavior. This level is a good one to be on!


A student will be moved to the Think About It level as a warning about his/her behavior, and a reminder to follow the rules.


Students who continue to display poor behavior choices can be moved down to the Official Warning level. Here, the teacher can decide what action to take. 


When a student moves to the Teacher Consequence level, the teacher will notify parents via a note or phone call. A visit to the principal’s office might also be in order. Students on this level may also lose recess time, etc.
