{FREEBIE!} Polka Dot Clip Chart

Slowly but surely, I'm revamping things for my classroom this summer. On that {extremely long!] to-do list? Redoing my clip chart!

Last year I used a vinyl clip chart I made using VistaPrint (a freebie banner with the file uploaded and custom printed), but it just didn't hold up as well as I hoped. So this year, I have a new set of polka dot clip chart signs and a colorful header. I'll be gluing these to black posterboard (and leaving a small border - it makes things stand out so well!) then laminating that bad boy at Lakeshore. I'll hang it from Command hooks and book rings (thanks to Cara at The First Grade Parade for that idea!), and attach my clothespins on. I like to put my students' numbers on the clothespins instead of their names... It keeps the color a student is on a bit more private. When my kiddos reach pink (the highest color), they get a little rhinestone on their clothespin. Five rhinestones and the student gets to keep his/her clothespin, and they get a RED one instead! (I continue on like this... Five rhinestones, new color clothespin, and so on...)

I'll be making a calendar for marking where the student ends up on to keep in their homework folder... Last year I just noted it on the Friday folder (if they did very well or not so great), but I'd like to have a daily "note" to parents this year with behavior codes. I'll post it when it's ready!

If you'd like to snag this little freebie, go to my TpT page HERE.
