One of the most important parts of running a successful classroom is having a solid classroom management system that works for you. I have tried lots, but this one that I started using last year is my absolute favorite. Its called the clip-system! Here is what it looks like:
At the beginning of the day everyone starts on green. I number the clips instead of using their names. It's nice for when we have visitors.
Pink: Earn a jewel for your clip
Ya'll, this is huge. Even the boys love this, in fact this past year the two students with the most jewels were boys. I got the jewels from Wal-Mart in the scrapbook sticker section. Sorry I don't have a better picture. I need to buy some more for next year.
