Revamping the Positive Reinforcement!

I am so excited about the new classroom management system we have started in the studio!  It focuses on individual behaviors vs. whole class.  Students sit at either red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple tables.  We numbered and colored the chairs with paint splats and our PBIS paint palette has paint brushes that correspond to each splat (chair). 

All the brushes are on the right side of the paint palette.  If they are on the right side, they are on green.  If they move up or down the scale, the brushes will be on the left side of the palette so it's clear what color they are! As a class, we came up with the consequences.  The students were very diplomatic and each splat is a reminder of their color consequence!  We have whole class behavior management in place too.  The class has a checklist we go over at the end of class focusing on entrance, attentiveness, following directions, volume, and clean up.  So, what color would you be?


  1. Did you make the paint brush clips. If so how did you do it?

    1. Thank you so much for visiting! I did make these paintbrush clips myself... I drew a template, traced them onto poster board, cut them out... I used some metallic tape for fun, drew accents on them, had them laminated and then glued clothespins to the backs.
