Flow Chart Cheat Sheet – Make a Behavior Plan Easy to Follow

Categories: Interventions | Visuals

Hectic classrooms can make following a behavior plan pretty challenging. Remembering what to do whenever the kiddo does “X” or “Y” or “Z” … not to mention “G!”, can be difficult when running a large classroom through a series of class activities. So when I created a behavior plan for a typically developing kiddo in a kindergarten classroom, I took advantage of Sasha’s idea about putting it into a flow chart! [As a supplement to the actual detailed plan ;)]

Flow Charts are easy to follow. With bright coded colors and large font, teachers can simply look up for a moment (while in the craze) and see the visual reminder of what to do next. Here are two samples of flow charts (one very simple, the other a bit more complex) I created for a kiddo who engages in off task as well as defiant behaviors. Functional assessments indicated that off-task behavior is maintained by attention, and defiance is maintained by escape from task or demands. I created each using Microsoft Word flow charts and used bright colors and large enough font for the teacher to see it from a distance. I also included the behavior definition in small print at the bottom of each chart as a reminder of what to look for and also for new teachers who might come in. I hope you guys find this super helpful!

  11. Oh, my! I love this!!! I’m in the process of developing something similar for my paras for instruction to follow the ABLLs routine and to tighten up structure in one kiddo’s day. Give him one second and it’ll turn into a 45 minute problem. 🙁
    I like the visual representation and the flow system. Can’t wait to see what you’re working on.
