It is called the Classroom Management Pocket Chart.
Each student will have a numbered button. I assign numbers at the beginning of the year, so they become used to identifying with a number. Behind each button, is another pocket. This will be where they store their Reader Punch card.
When a student needs to go to the library, they will put their button next to one of the Library Buttons. This will ensure that no more than 3 students go to the library at a given time. It will also let me know which students are out of the classroom. Every time a student completes a Book Blurb on a library book, I will punch their Reader Card with this adorable star hole punch. I talked about my Book Blurbs and Book Bucks in a previous post. Click here to see that post.
I had originally thought of giving them book bucks for every Book Blurb they complete, but, then I got worried about drama happening over missing book bucks etc. I'll still use the money, but they won't store it in this pocket chart. Rewards will be determined by the number of hole punches they receive.
I had a few requests for the number buttons to go up to 31 instead of 30, so they could also be used for a class calendar. I updated the document and added the 3 additional pieces needed to create a calendar. There is also an extra blank button.
