DIY Behavior Clip Chart


Behavior clip charts have been my top choice for classroom behavior management systems.  I am a big fan, because it gives every student the grace they deserve to start fresh every day.  No questions asked.  It doesn’t matter how rough yesterday may have been, today is a new day and we are starting fresh.  Many educators (and parents) like them and use them, some don’t.  It works well for me and the students whom I have taught.

This is a simple, DIY behavior clip chart to make.  You will need: paper, printer, binder rings, hole-punch, lamination, and ribbon.


1.  Design and/or print out the clip chart pages that you want to use.*  This one is super cute and FREE.


2.  Laminate the pages for durability.  Yes, kids are hard on these charts.  You want to laminate.

3.  Hole punch on most tops and most bottoms, so you can hang using binder rings.


4.  Insert binder rings into the holes.

5.  Add a cute ribbon or other embellishments at the top.

6.  Voila! Quick, simple, DIY behavior management clip chart.  Just add students and you’re ready for the new school year! 🙂

*Parents can easily adjust the word choice to use these clip charts within their home, instead of a classroom setting.  I keep a mini-version at home for use with both of my children.  It helps with consistency, especially if this is what your child’s teacher is implementing within his/her class for their classroom behavior management system.

  1. This is so clever and useful! My son is only two but he’s starting a Mother’s Morning Out preschool program next week that’s just half-day, twice a week. I’m interested in seeing how he behaves in a classroom setting, and I think your chart here would work very nicely at home too, with just a few modifications. I love your bright colors and chevrons as well (fellow color fan here!). Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Merry Monday and we hope you’ll join us again next week! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Christine, for your kind words. I hope that your son enjoys his experience at MMO preschool. I am happy that you will be able to use the DIY Behavior Clip Chart. Hopefully it will be a good encouragement for positive behavior and help discourage negative behavior. Again, I am such a huge fan that every day starts fresh with behavior and the clip chart. Talk about grace! I look forward to joking Merry Monday again! 🙂
