Welcome to the Bright Ideas Blog Hop!
It's no secret that I LOVE my clip chart.
It was a HUGE hit!
I am a big fan of simple, yet effective, and the Clip Hall of Fame is definitely simple and VERY effective!
Here's how I utilize it in my classroom...
On the left is my clip chart. The Clip Hall of Fame is on the right.
Each week, my students tried their best to earn at least 3 role model days. (I always start the year off with 2 role model days and then change it to 3 after they get used to the clip chart.) Those who earned at least 3 role model days for the week, were able to choose a gem for their clip chart clip. I purchased my gems from Target. They are self sticking gems, so they are very easy to use.
As you can see in the picture above, on the left, choosing a gem is serious business. Some students choose all the same colors, some do patterns, and some let me choose so they could be surprised. Choosing the right color gem is very important! As soon as my students earn 6 gems on their clip, it is retired to the Clip Hall of Fame. This is VERY exciting! They are given a 10 finger woo, we cheer for them, and they get to choose the color I write their name in on their new clip.
Look at what my Clip Hall of Fame looked like by the end of the year! Some students retired 6 clips! They worked very hard to be role models each day and earning a gem was very, very motivating.
I will definitely be using the Clip Hall of Fame again!
