Chore/Daily/Behavior Charts pt. 1


UPDATE: Go check out Alex's NEW CHARTS! :)


Items needed: 2 Poster Board, Markers, Velcro, Scissors, 
Stickers or fun clipped pictures, Ruler, Clothespin or Clip.


Velcro Chore/Daily Chart: Child gets to put a blue *reusable* sticker for every task (s)he completes/goal (s)he accomplishes. He gets a red sticker at the bottom for every day he does them all. At the end of the week-you can either chose the size of the reward based on how many red stickers they have. OR we have a "treasure chest" with goodies (squirt guns, tattoos, matchbox cars, etc.) and he only gets to pick something on Sunday IF Ninja gets all of the red stickers for the week. <---I am pretty lenient with some things since he's only 3) So far it's WORKING! Mama's happy! 
Behavior Chart: This was a group project. Ninja helped decide which punishments were best for each level of naughtiness. He's been struggling with not listening and LOTS of whining, so that's what we made this chart to help curb. =( But it would work with pretty much anything. EXAMPLE: Every morning his "A" starts at the top.  If I have to tell him not to pull my cat's tail, the "A" moves down to a warning. If he does it again or starts whining/throwing a fit-we go to the next level and so on (and he loses the opportunity of getting a blue sticker for being "nice to Kali".) If he listens and calmly leaves the conversation after the first time he's been reprimanded, I will take him out of the warning spot after 5 minutes (and he still has the chance to get a blue sticker for being "nice to Kali".)

Alex has always been a bit of a handful and this system has worked WONDERS for us!
Hope they work for you!! :)
He has since "graduated" from these charts, I am about to post his new ones, stay tuned! ;-)

I have a suggestion. Add positive reinforcements. I teach second grade. Always having to clip DOWN makes a behavior system too negative. What about when he does an utterly awesome deed? Clipping up helps my students own better behavior.

@Mrs. S (Melly) Thanks for the suggestion!! During this "stage" of my son's life, this was the strategy that worked best. I recently made a new chart for him. where there is a "step-up." When he does an exceptional job of completing his daily tasks and using his manners, he gets a reward. :-) http://thetanuzlife.blogspot.com/2013/02/choredailybehavior-charts-pt-2.html

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this chart - and it matches what we use at the school where I teach AND where my kids go to school. My girls have actually asked if we could use the behavior "colors" for home, and I struggled to translate the school-based consequences into consequences that would be realistic at home. This does it PERFECTLY - thank you so much for posting. I LOVE the updated ones, too - and we'll see if we can transition to your more advanced one after awhile with this one. THANKS again!!! =)=)

Ok, so I slaughtered the execution of this, but it's been awesome for my son! Reviewed it and gave it "2 pins up!" http://www.thedailypin.net/2013/05/behavior-warning-chart.html

Such an awesome idea! I have an 3.5 year old who has been very difficult lately. However I have been giving him allowance (he loves putting coin in his piggy bank) so on Sunday I give him a handful of pennies if he's been a good helper and controlled his temper during the week. This visual should help a lot!! :)

If we ever do end up acting just like a rats or pavlov's dogs, it will be largely because behaviorism has conditioned us to do so. See the link below for more info.
