Sparking Student Motivation - Revisiting Positive Behavior Clip Chart

Happy Saturday!!
I'm linking up with my BBB, Joanne from Head Over Heels For Teaching to share an UPDATE on my positive behavior clip chart. I linked up in May with Joanne about this (click here if you missed it). Last year was my first year implementing it, and I really think it worked very well, but after reflecting on my year, I decided to tweak it just a bit. It's still pretty much the same- cute surfer lingo, positive options... but I've added one more "negative" poster because I had a few kids who really tried their luck with me last year, but they didn't need to go to the office!! I also changed the top color to blue because at the end of the day, when I was trying to write a positive note to those parents, I was struggling to put my hands on a pink pen or marker sometimes! I figure blue is fool-proof. :-P

Sooooo of course, I had to create it so that you could have it if you wanted it, too! For this weekend only, it will be on sale: 50% off! Heck, you've probably got enough feedback credits for that! ;-) Click here or any of the images below to be taken to the product in my TPT store.

I hope you all have a great weekend! Make sure to go check out the other links in Joanne's link-up. There are always such great ideas to take away! :)


  1. Love the freebie! Always enjoy your ideas!

  2. I have thought about using this in a middle school classroom but not sure how it would work. All of my training in college was at an elementary level and therefore all of my behavior management skills are at an elementary level. I have thought about using numbered clips rather than named clips but then I would have to spend the time re-setting them every class period (well I would give that to a student to do). Or possibly I would have one chart for each class? Have you tried Class Dojo?

  3. I use this clip chart too! Only thing was that it was too long...My kids switch classes and have to carry it to the other room. So, I just kept the green section full size and made the rest of the sections a little smaller since most students stay on green throughout the day.

  4. Looks beautiful! I love that you're such a reflective teacher and made modifications to suit the needs of your classroom! Thanks for sharing and linking up!

  5. Your behaviour chart is super cute and I love your surfer theme. Last year I had a rock and roll themed one but I brought it home and need to redo it with a superhero theme. You have inspired me to get back to that project!!

    1. Ooh, I did one of these with super heroes last year. The kids loved when they got to the top level and I called their parents with good news. My titles were fun things like 'Cape in for Repair' and 'Nemesis vanquished'. Great fun!

  6. I love your clip chart and how you are editing it for this year!! Is your whole room a surfer theme? I enjoyed reading your post as always! :)
