Behavior Clip Chart

I am enjoying my second official day of Spring Break, but I still wanted to share something that I have tried this year that has really helped behavior.  Since I am on Spring Break, I didn't want to go down to school just to take a picture of it, but luckily, I had a picture I had already taken that had it in there!  Happy Dance!

I can't find the exact one I have (I printed it out a few years ago) but here is a similar Freebie I found on Teacher's Pay Teachers.

This is the behavior clip chart that I have my students use.  I love the fact that students can move up instead of just down.  When I ask a student to clip down, I try to find at least two students who are modeling the appropriate behavior and I ask them to clip up.  I really want to encourage making good choices instead of just focusing on the bad.

EDITABLE Clip Chart Weekly Behavior Tracker Freebie
Each student has a copy of this sheet in their planner.  Each afternoon before we pack up, the students use a crayon or marker to show where they ended up by the end of the day.  They take their planner home to their parents who must initial it.  I give each student a sticker in our sticker economy the next morning if they have their parent's initial.  I collect them at the end of the week and give an additional small prize to all students who have initials for the whole week.  I save these in their files and share them with parents during conferences.

You can download a free copy of this clip chart weekly behavior chart here from Classroom Compulsion.  It is editable, so I edited for font and to match my own clip chart.

 I am linking up this week with Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried It Tuesday.


  1. I love how you make a point of supporting students who are doing the right thing as well. So important!

  2. When I loop, I very rarely have to use a behavior system, but next year I will be off my loop, so I will definitely be keeping this in mind. I agree with Jennifer, I like that you point out the positive behavior at the same time.

  3. It is great that you make a point to have students clip up and not just focus on the negative. I also love that the students track their behavior each day by coloring in where they ended up at the end of the day. Thanks for linking up! :)
