Jungle Theme Behavior Chart!

Hello All, I have finally finished putting together my Jungle Theme Behavior Chart. I am so excited to use this in my classroom this year. Since I cannot get into my classroom for another 2 weeks I decided to hang it from my curtain rod for the pictures.
The system works like this: Each child starts everyday on Happy Hippopotamus, this is acceptable behavior for the classroom. The child can then move up or down from there depending on their behavior choices. I have included the list of acceptable/unacceptable behaviors that I intend to give to my families as well as a full explaination of how I intend to use this chart.
I give several ways to assemble this chart in the packet using magnets, ribbon and/or laminating. I chose to use page protectors and binder clips for my classroom. I chose the page protectors so that I could store the small reinforcer graphics for rewards inside the chart.
I punched both sides of each card inside the page protector with my three hole punch. I also trimmed the white side of the page protector so that the pages would hang closer together. I reinforced the holes in case of accidental tugging by kiddos, and attached cards from top to bottom. I will use clothespins with the kiddos names for markers.
The main reason I chose to assemble my chart this way is because each Friday I will have to store it in a cabinet. The binder rings make folding this chart easy and the page protectors make it durable. The entire chart is self storing and does not need much space. I plan to store it in my filing cabinet and hang it on command hooks. You can also make a miniature version of this chart using the included 1/4 page graphics. The entire file is included on the TpT Preview, please check it out! Download a copy for $5.00 in my TpT store(Click the TpT link on the right side of the page.) Enjoy! Christine
