Clip Chart

Dear 2nd Grade Parents,

This year we will be using a colored “clip chart” to monitor our behavior and classroom choices.  Your child will have a clip in each classroom that they will physically move up or down the chart, depending on their choices.  Please keep in mind that you child may not move every single day!  In order to move up, students must go above and beyond in their behavior choices.  The chart below explains how the clip chart works.




Students who reach the pink level will be rewarded for their positive choices by adding a jewel to their clip and receive a special certificate of recognition.


Great Choice!

Students who continue to make positive choices move up to the purple level.  They are one step closer to having outstanding classroom behavior!


Good Choice!

Students who make positive choices will receive recognition as they move up the chart.


Ready to Learn!

Everyone starts the day “Ready to Learn”! Students will can “clip up” or “clip down” throughout the day depending on their behavior choices.


Slow Down!

Students who receive a warning will move to yellow.  This serves as a reminder to students to think about the choices they make.


Think About It!

Students who continue to make poor choices, will move to orange.  This will result in a loss of 5 minutes of recess.


Parent Contact…

Students who move to red will miss recess in its entirety.  During that time, students will complete a behavior reflection log to be signed by a parent.  Parents will be contacted via telephone.


We believe that this system will be a positive way for students to monitor their choices and will give them behavior goals to strive for!  Every night your child will bring home their clip chart calendar with it marked with the color they ended their day on.  As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.
