Behavior Clip Chart "Beach Theme"

Hello everyone its Cindy! 
I am doing a Beach Theme again this year so I decided to cutesify some things that I used last year.  My clip chart last year worked pretty well it consisted of four fishes a Blue, Green, Yellow, and Red.  The students got to move up and down and they got sparkle notes sent home for being on blue and they got behavior notes for being on yellow or red.  Too many times on red and they lost privileges.  The problem with my clip chart was that all the fishes were the same die cut fish (so they were all smiling!)  One day one student pointed out towards the end of the year that he didn't understand why they red fish was smiling if it wasn't a good thing to be on red.  That is when I decided that I needed something different for next year.  After talking to Angie and learning about Rick Morris's clip chart I decided to try it out.  I still wanted it to fit my theme so I changed the colors a bit and added surfer terms.  Hope you can use it in your class!

  1. I really love this! I've never seen this before. My grade level does the card flipping system, and I've always thought there has to be something else we can do. I'm going to see if my kindergarten team will switch over to this method!
