Color Chart Clip Board

Earlier this summer, my wonderful former teammate Alyce, create a super cute clip board version of my behavior color chart. It is a great way to have a portable version of a color chart that can be shared with your partner teacher, teammates or specials teachers. Here is a set-by-step of how it was created:

1. You will need a clipboard, scrap booking paper (in the colors that you need for your color chart), Modge Podge, sponge brush, and a title/picture to name your chart. Pictures from google images.


2. First glue your scrap booking paper the way that you would like for it to look on the clipboard and allow that to dry so that the paper doesn't move when you are covering the entire project. Glue from underneath the paper...don't try to cover the whole clipboard at one time (the paper tends to shift and bubble).

3. Add the title/picture label on top of your scrap booking paper. Let dry.

4. Once everything is thoroughly dry, it is time to cover the entire project with Modge Podge. Use even strokes. from left to right, until the whole clipboard is covered. Feel free to use the Modge Podge as needed because if your sponge is not wet enough, it tends to pull and give the clipboard a "streaky" look.

5. Allow it to dry completely.

6. Now you are ready to make your clips! These numbers were purchased at Hobby Lobby and are used for calendars. All you need to do is peel and stick!

                 


Here is the final product:


This one is a little different than the original post. The stripes really give it a a nice touch!!


I am currently working on some cute titles for you....so tell me, what are your themes?

I really like this tracker -- I don't like the big clip charts because everyone (kids, parents, and other teachers) can see all the "naughty" kids. Teaching in a smallish school on an air force base, people like to gossip :( I like that you can keep this to yourself. I think I'll be making one :) Thanks for sharing!

Farming! Great idea! I have been looking for a mobile behavior chart and this is it. Thanks for sharing.

l.o.v.e. We are the wolverines, so a paw print would work.

Peace signs! I knew going in I had 34 kids on my roster (1st grade!!) and 31 little bodies showed up so I can use all the PEACE I can get!

Love, love, love this idea because I'm teaming this year and this would make it so much easier to send the clipboard with the class as they switch. Genius!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

Ms. Morgart I have a great way for you to keep your clip chart private! It is a clip chart software that you can use on your ipad! It will track the data as well as keep track on who has participated in class. Check it out at www.colormydaykids.com and email me at colormydaykids@gmail.com for a free trial!
Thanks
