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!
