Monday Made it - August 5th

I'm linking up with Tara for Monday Made it!

I'm not usually crafty, but I decided to try and fancy up my clip chart with some ribbon. It was fun to make but, I did accidentally hot glue it to my kitchen floor. I changed the wording on my clip chart this year, and am excited to use it. I also made a Clip Hall of Fame display. At the end of each week, those students who have at least 3 clip ups to the top of the chart, will be given a gem to decorate their clip. I bought stick on gems to make it easy to attach. Once they have earned six gems, their clip will be retired and they will get a new one.  Then, they get to choose the color in which I write their name on their new clip. Exciting stuff!

You can download both of them here!


  1. I like the idea of a clip hall of fame! I am going to need to do that this year. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Super cute chart! Really, really like that! The gem thing also sounds like a great plan. The kids love when they can add something like that to show off.

    I'm in 4th, and I use Class Dojo. Anyone with 10 pts. at the end of the week could pick a new avatar. They LOVED that! It's the simple things, ya know.....?

    1. I tried Class Dojo, but it didn't work as well as the clip chart with my last year's group of Kinders.

  3. I seriously need to make one for my clip chart!

  4. Love love love your clip chart! The gem idea is such a cute idea! I may steal that. :)

  11. Super cute! Thanks for the freebies!

  12. thanks a lot for the freebie clip chart!!!!! I used a home made stop light last year but i LOVE the words and pictures you have to illustrate the emotion. This will be great for my Pre-Kinders!

  13. Thank you for the freebie! I love the Clip Hall of Fame! :-)

  14. Oh my gosh, I love this idea Lori. You totally have me rethinking my current "Behavior Monkey Tree.'

  15. I have a question...I'm switching from a card system to the clipchart system this year. I've searched all over the place and love your new behavior clip chart the best. However, I'm a little confused how you will use it in your classroom since you have clip chart at the top in yellow, you have a seperate clip chart hall of fame sign (I understand that concept) and your think about it is also in yellow. Could you explain the 2 that are in yellow and how you'll do that?

  16. I love this clip chart. Going to give it a try this year. Thanks so much for all your hard work!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love to read them!
