So, I'm doing it. I'm jumping on the clipchart bandwagon.
I have been anti-clipchart for about as long as I've been teaching.I just didn't like a system where a child never had: 1) the opportunity to turn their day around or 2) the chance to go beyond green. Where's the incentive in that? I stay on green to avoid being in trouble. I want more than that for my kids. I want them to know it feels good to make choices that help us become better people. I'm super thankful that my teaching partner is willing to try just about anything I ask her to. We've found a way to make ours "mobile" and it will be an additional leadership role (job) in our room.
So, I'm sharing my clip chart headers with you. Nothing fancy, just something to make it cute. :)
PS - I'm thinking about some upcoming blog posts about lessons and books that tie into the 7 Habits for Happy Kids. I know a few of my sweet bloggy friends have started to use this in their schools, but I didn't know many of you were out there. If you don't mind, take a second to answer the poll at the top right so I know what direction to head in! Thanks!!
PPS - Forgive me if this post is a hot mess. Back-to-School Insomnia has set in. Nothing my doctor has given is really helping. I was asleep at 9:30, but wide awake at 3:30. Yay. Fun.
