Little by little, I'm learning more specifics about the 4th grade behavior chart from C.S. One thing is clear, it is really motivating him. The color codes are not just an end of the day review scribbled off quickly with the teacher's signature. All the children have a card on the door. Everyone started off with yellow cards. C.S. is hoping (with his typical game-player sort of ambition to level-up) to see his card move up to a new level or as he says, "I at least hope to flip up to a green. But not brown. Brown is the baddest." He is still at yellow. But his class behavior, his behavior and others, is being monitored and is constantly on his mind, in a most positive way.
