I made this chart to improve behavior management with one of my smaller groups in upper elementary. This is just a photo of what I handed out to my students. The download below is a blank MS Word document ready for editing. I only meet with this group 4 days/week, but the download also includes a template for 5 days.
I informed the students we would be coming up with a list of rules/guidelines as well as a list of consequences and rewards. Afterwards, I typed up an agreement/contract including the ideas we'd come up with and asked them to sign it.
Finally, I stapled their contracts to the back of these incentive charts to remind them of the behavior they agreed to. They receive a check-mark for each rule they uphold daily, when they don't receive a consequence and when they are caught being a leader. X-marks are when they are unable to follow the guidelines and when they receive a warning for their behavior. Keep in mind that 3 warnings = an automatic consequence and X-marks cancel out check-marks which is why they are subtracted at the bottom.
25 points = their choice of one of the rewards we agreed upon (special snacks, lunch with me and a friend of their choice, treasure box choice, etc.)
I encourage the students to fill out the boxes at the bottom at the end of the week, but it's completely optional. If they are left blank, I sometimes write my own comments for the girls to see the following week.
I attach a new sheet each week so it's easier to track their behavior and points. My students are responsible for giving themselves checks and X-marks throughout the lesson, but I go back and double check that they have been keeping accurate score.
