Rainbow System



We are building rainbows for good behavior in Mrs. Lee's room!  If a child is caught going the extra mile for good behavior, he/she can earn a piece for their rainbow.  At the end of the week, if the rainbow is complete, your child will get to choose a prize from the treasure box.

  1. Love this idea! How do you store all the pieces?

    Thank you

  2. I have a small tub that I just put all the pieces in together that sits on a shelf next to the pocket chart. They are responsible for choosing the right color that comes next. It works GREAT for me. My kiddos love earning their rainbow.

  3. Great idea!!!

  4. Michelle,
    They don't glue. They just sit in the pocket chart on top of each color. Then, at the end of the week, they all come out and we start over the next week. Does this help?

  6. Love this idea... I was thinking having the students color their own rainbow. Giving them some ownership. Thanks!! Oh the Gingerbread man unit is awesome. Since we had bad weather before our break,I'm doing my unit when we get back. Would love to get (buy) your recording sheets. sswyatt@gmail.com

  11. Hey Julie, I do this system too! But I now read "How Full is Your Bucket for Kids" and incorporate the rainbow into "drops in the bucket". I use bucket cut outs from "Shapes, etc." I now use it for my discipline plan... it really works! I love that you have rainbow shapes... I got tired of that and just have rectangles. Guess I am lazy!

  12. What a cute idea! So much more creative than the traditional sticker charts.

  13. To make the rainbows, do you cut a strip of construction paper for each color and then laminate? Do you put the purple semi circle in the pocket first and then the blue and so on to build the rainbow from the center out? Really cute idea!

  15. Do you have this system on top of the other consequence/behavior system? I love the idea of positive reinforcement on top

  20. This is a great idea, it took me a while to realize that they are just smaller and smaller semi circles !!!!! I was thinking WHO is going to CUT out all those arches.
    lol thanks for sharing this. Christine :)

  21. Thanks!!! This is the perfect positive approach for my room. I would never have thought of this. I never liked the pulling cards system because of the visual negative tone. We do PBIS, but sometimes handing out tickets is combersome to carry and give.
