Behavior charts in schools are a hot topic. Many preschool teachers use them. But, are they harmful to young children? This episode will take you through how my thoughts and feelings on this topic have changed over the years. Learn how I went from using those fancy clip and star behavior charts to relying on relationships, a little detective work, and teaching and why it is a much better system. Topics Discussed:
  • Behavior charts and my old way of thinking
  • What I do to manage behaviors in my classroom currently
  • Why behavior charts don't work and can even be harmful to children
