Selecting a Behavior Chart for your 4th-6th Grade Students
We don’t want your students to think that using behavior charts is childish, so that’s why we made a variety of behavior charts that are age-appropriate and that respect your students’ growing sense of maturity. But be sure to start with a chart that will allow them to find quick success. If you require too many repetitions of the new behavior before they earn their reward, your students may get discouraged. So, start with behavior charts requiring a low number of repetitions, and then gradually increase the number of repetitions as the new behavior becomes more of a habit.
Using Our Printable Behavior Charts
Younger children are often okay with having their behavior chart taped to their desk or clearly posted in the classroom. Students in the intermediate grades may be more self-conscious. Feel a youngster out on what approach is preferred, while keeping practicality and the goal of success at the forefront!
Keep it Interesting
Watch for new opportunities to celebrate your students’ successes! Give them new goals to aspire to and watch for students that are doing things above and beyond what’s expected. Look for students who are making progress, even if there’s still a lot of room for improvement. Remember that baby steps are cause for celebration, too! Aim to keep things fresh, adjusting goals, using new incentives and selecting different charts from our creative selection.
