Hooray! This project is fully funded

In my special education class, my students often struggle to demonstrate appropriate behaviors. As research has shown, often special education students are not able to recognize appropriate behavioral or social cues in settings. So often, as part of my job as a teacher, I teach students how to recognize and correct negative behaviors to make them more socially appropriate and to engage in the learning process more effectively. In our class, we have devised a chart where students' behavior is correlated to a color. All students start out on Blue and then move down to green, yellow and red when negative behaviors arise. Students love the colors as they work hard to stay on blue. At the end of the day, I hear kids telling their parents "I'm on Blue!" They are so excited. What I would like for my classroom is a durable pocket chart where each student can place his/her name on it and have their own color section. I like the idea of being able to have the chart posted in class to allow students to encourage each other to stay on blue. Please help us all be on blue by assisting in this funding opportunity.
