Monday Made It! & Behavior Management

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: 
Incredible choices
Ready to learn (where everyone will start)
First warning
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!

Wow, the whale designs are so cute! And different; love that it's not one of the themes that's all over the place!

I love the reward coupons, too. I used something similar when I taught 3rd, but when I moved to 2nd we do the same thing but don't bother with the actual coupons! They earn "2nd grade bucks" and can cash them in for various rewards. Yours are adorable, though!

I'm your newest follower!

I love your behavior management system. I will be teaching K-4 language and learning disabilities in the fall and ealy think this system could work in my room. Are you going to put this in your teacher's notebook store?
