Behavior Chart Communication Form - Freebie

I've had a few questions about how I communicate with my parents about what color my students end on.  I like to use these to stamp the color on their chart:



All of these colors correlate with my chart except purple... I needed pink!  So I found these:



Not only does it have pink, but they are "shimmery".  There is a silver stamp included - which will be perfect to use for my tree topper (top of the chart).  I haven't had anyone make it there yet, but they are working for it!

I originally used a calendar, but parents had questions about what the colors meant and/or if a student ended the day on yellow or orange they wanted to know the offense.  It is hard at the end of the day to write down on multiple calendars what rule was not followed.  So I made up this form that allows me to stamp the color for behavior and quickly write a number that correlates with a behavior offense.  Take a look:

Click on the picture to download the file.  If you are using the same colors on your chart - this may work for you.  If you would like the editable version, please let me know and I will either upload it or send it to you via email. At the end of 2 weeks, I take out this form and put a new log into my students' binders.  I will keep the forms in a file so that if there are ever any questions or concerns about a child's behavior, I can easily go back and see what type of behaviors occurred and how often. I thought I would share the form just in case someone out there could use it.

I missed my kiddos today.  I spent the day out of the classroom in a Science Data Team Meeting.  Looking forward to seeing my firsties tomorrow.
Have a great night!

  6. Very cute, thanks for sharing. I have a chart that someone else made, but it goes in rainbow order. I just can't wrap my head around red being the best after having using the stoplight method! Do you have a copy of your chart that I can blow up? Thanks!

  10. I actually bought mine through Lakeshore Learning when I purchased something else. However, they have them at Amazon.com for about $3 cheaper. Here is the link:

    Hope that helps.

  14. I love your behavior communication sheet! I'm trying to wrap my brain around how it works. I imagine my students working on some independent work the last ten minutes of school as I walk around and stamp their planners. It seems like it would take a while to do because I would have to look up at my chart as I get to each child to determine the color of their stamp. Do you have any tips for how to do it? I LOVE the bingo marker idea. Fabulous!

  21. Hi, thanks for the communication form. I just happened to come across it on Pinterest. I will definitely be using this in the classroom next year. Can you tell me what font you used on the original form? I would like to use the same font for other communication forms that I use in the classroom.
    Thanks... GennieKay@hotmail.com
