I don’t know if you use a clip chart behavior system in your classroom, but I made a new one to match my new theme for this year. Last year my theme was frogs, so it was froggy themed. This year my theme is mystery, so I made a mystery one. I use the smaller clothespins. I like to put numbers on the clips instead of numbers, just in case a parent walks in. I also keep it by my desk and not out in front of the classroom. Just so it’s not too obvious to the other students.
And I know what you’re thinking…you change your theme every year? Yup! Am I crazy or what? Oh well, this year is mystery/detectives, last year was frogs, year before Jungle Safari, year before sports, and on and on. One of these days I’m going to stick to just one theme, but who knows when I will smarten up!
Let me know what you think. I kinda really like it! It has categories like: Ready to Investigate, Outstanding Investigation, and I Spy Parent Contact. It will be my newest thing at my store at TPT if you are interested. And if you are doing a mystery theme, let me know. It feels kinds lonely out there for that type of theme!
What theme are you doing this Fall??
