Tracking Classroom Behavior Using a Number Line

Motivate students to work together with the use of a Behavior Number Line. With this strategy, the class’s behavior is monitored and scored on a number line from -10 to 10. The class score can move up or down throughout the day depending on how well they work together, complete their lessons, and resolve issues respectfully. The additional benefit of this strategy is it ties together behavior management and content skill-building as students develop number fluency at the same time. Even more importantly, they know there is always an opportunity to improve even after a setback during the day.

Reflection Question:
