I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!

This week I worked on my whole class behavior management plan and it's still a work in progress. Here is what I have so far:
I'm using a clip chart next year, like many of you. My levels are:
Ready to learn (where everyone will start)
Second warning (My students will need more than 1 warning)
Lose 1/2 your free time (we will have 10 minutes of free time at the end of each day)
Lose your free time
I am considering adding another "clip up" section but I want to keep it manageable. I also made a mini clip-chart that can go to with them to specials (music, PE, art) if the kids are having a rough day.
Any students who don't lose any free time during the week will get a prize on Friday. The previous teacher left me a prize box so until the prize box items are gone, I'll mix the coupons and prizes.
To minimize behavior problems, I plan on trying the CHAMP system. CHAMP stands for:
Communication - How can I communicate? (whisper, silence)
Help - How do I get help? (raise hand, ask 3 friends)
Activity - What activity are we doing? (centers, lesson, read aloud)
Movement - Can I move around the room? (pencil, bathroom)
Participation - How do I participate? (raise hand, cut, write, read)
I'm excited to go check out what everyone else made!
