• This year in Room 20, we will be using a colored “clip chart” to monitor our behavior and our choices. Your child will have a clip that they will physically move up or down the chart, depending on their

    behavior choices. Please understand that not all students will move their clip each day…some may remain on “green” for the entire day.  The chart below explains how the clip chart works.




         Ready to learn




    Think About it!



        Teacher’s Choice


         Parent contact


    Making consistently positive choices through the day will help you move up to the purple section of our chart.


    You will get to start out each day on “Ready to Learn”. Green means “Good job!” You will move your clip up or down depending on your choices each day.

     If you receive a warning, you will move your clip down to help you remember to think about your choices.


    If you continue to make poor choices, you will move to “Teacher’s Choice”. You may miss recess, fill out a behavior form, etc..


    If you still choose to make bad decisions, you will move to “Parent contact”. The teacher will call or email your parents. Mr. Pickell will be informed of the behavior.


     Students begin each day on Green – “Ready to Learn”. If a student moves down to yellow or orange, they still have the opportunity to change their behavior and move their clip back up. However, any student who moves to red, will remain there for the day.


    Students who end each day on purple will receive a ticket to go into the class reward jar. This increases their chances of earning special classroom prizes and rewards.


    Each day the students will record their “color” for the day in their homework planner, so parents will be aware of their behavior choices.
