A few days ago one of my colleagues, who is a great teacher, wonderful mom, and all around awesome person sat down at our team meeting and said, "I want you to know that I am never using a behavior color chart again! And, it seems, her reason for saying it was not that different from my reason for letting those charts go.
Her own sweet first grader had come home from school the day before, completely crushed after being put on "red"on the color chart. A sweet boy who wants nothing more than to please his teacher and do the right thing at school.
I'm sure he did something he shouldn't have or tried his teacher's patience one too many times, but that child will not walk into that classroom with his head held high tomorrow.
I remembered my own son coming home from Kindergarten, day after day, in tears because he just couldn't seem to stay on 'green'.
He wanted so badly to behave. He wanted to please his teachers. He wanted mom and dad to be proud of him. But his impulsivity did not allow him to keep himself in check for the whole school day.
Every time she moved that clip, he was being reminded that he wasn't good enough for his teacher. That kindergarten year was one of the hardest years our family has endured.
It is utterly heartbreaking to hear your child say things like, "I hate myself. Why can't I be good? My teacher hates me. I'm not good enough. I began to look at my students through different eyes and imagine what they must be feeling.
Some are ADHD like my little guy and are battling their own bodies for control each day, some are coming from homes so broken and troubled it's just astounding, and many are simply neglected and left to be raised by siblings or television.
I really had to stop and realize that my wishes for their classroom behavior were superceded by their own complicated lives.
This realization led me to discover a few things about color charts, both from using them and seeing them used in my own children's classrooms. They track behavior, but they do not change it.
For kids who are not able to adhere to the cultural expectations of school, the chart can be absolutely demoralizing. And this seems to be mostly boys - hmmm. The chart makes the assumption, before the kid ever crosses the threshold of the classroom door, that he is going to misbehave.
As much as we try to make that chart seem like a 'reminder' and not a negative thing, it is still embarrassing to many children.
Even kids who always stay on 'green', often feel stress and worry as they watch some of their classmates repeatedly move on the color chart. I know many proponents of the charts say that some kids just need the reminder to get back on track. They see their clip moved and they want to get back on green.
The children know the chart is not a negative thing - it's just a way to encourage them to do the right thing. They need consequences for negative behavior. And the newer charts reward positive behavior. It works for me and my kids like it. I hear and understand all of these beliefs - some of them are very valid.
