A great way to record students’ behavior, absences, tardies,
bathroom passes, preparedness, etc. is to create a flip chart using a file
folder and index cards.
file folders (different colors make color coding easy)
3”x5” index cards.
Place the open file folder on a flat surface and start at
the bottom on the left, leaving about a half inch. Turn the index card upside
down so that the pink line is at the bottom and place a small piece of tape at
the top. Line your next card up on the pink line of the first and tape it down
(don’t use glue). Continue until you have half the number you need or you reach
the top. Then, do the same on the right side of the file folder. Write
students’ names at the bottom of each index card.
