Individual Behavior Management

I think I've mentioned before that my room is small. I'm not exagerrating, it's really tiny. I'm going to have to measure it one day, but I'm a little scared to see the actual digits.

Everyone is familiar with the "clip" behavior system. As with anything, I have to take a great idea and modify it to fit my needs and up the cuteness factor a little, Yes, it is posted on the back door of my classroom. I cut the tree trunk out of plain brown construction paper. The parts of the tree are just pieces of circular scrapbook paper.

The wooden squirrels were purchased at Michael's. I had to travel to three different Michael's this past summer to get the number I needed. The squirrels are a seasonal item from Summer 2010. I just hot glued a magnet on the back of each. The yellow and red signs are car magnets that I made at VistaPrint.

Another handy tip-I wanted to be able to reuse the squirrels if I tired of them on my behavior chart. I used my label maker with the clear label tape to add my students' names to each squirrel.
