I noticed the same thing! I am new to using Teacher web but cannot figure out how you changed the font on your pages and where did you get the great clip art for the beach theme?

Love all your pics...but I think I am missing something because I checked them all and can't find the behavior beach.

I noticed you had some great graphics on your teacher web page. I have a teacher web page and am also doing a beach theme. Could you post some of your graphics or email them?
I would really appreciate it.

Very neat room. I had an ocean theme last year and never thought to use raffia.

I just put library pockets on posterboard, sea creature stickers on each pocket and then laminated it. I decorated around the chart rather than using different colors of fish for each card.

Behavior Beach. I got 4 ocean animals at the party store and laminated them all seperate from each other. We use clothes pins to move up to the angelfish (caught being good!) or down to grouper fish (warning) or way down to the crabby crab. Pins on crabs get a call home or a chat with a parent. I have a photo of Behavior Beach on my website:

Go to classroom photos and scroll down to the picture of behavior beach.

I had an ocean theme last year and the title of my behavior area was Diving for Great Behavior. I just did the "card thing" where each student had a pocket of four different colored cards. I displayed divers and ocean animals around the chart. I made it out of poster paper and then stuck the pockets on it (6 in each row). The pockets had a number on them which correlated to the studnet's numbers. Worked great!

I'm not for sure if this is what you are looking for, but it may give someone an idea! I had an "under the sea" room for the past 3 years. For the past two years, each child had a ship or a boat with their name on it. If a child misbehaved or broke a rule, he or she had to move their boat. Here were the infractions:
One "move" - "Rough Waters" (this was their warning)
Two "moves" - "Stormy Weather" (missed half of break)
Three "moves" - "Shipwrecked" (missed all of break, note sent home)

Here is one idea I've used before with an ocean/beach theme that you could is more for class motivation and recognition rather than a behavior cueing system but thought I'd kids loved it

Treasure Poem:

"X" Marks the Spot

X marks the spot.
Hidden treasures untold.
Rubies? Sapphires?
Maybe even gold?

The ancient map
provides the clues
For good little sailors
If they choose.

I had the poem displayed and we would read it each morning as a reminder about choices. When I caught a student making good choices he or she would get a puzzle part of a map. When they collected all the parts they got to go to the treasure box as a reward.
I've also used it for the entire class on a bulletin board. When the entire class was caught making good choices or showing a specific character trait or received a compliment I would put large parts of a map puzzle on the bulletin board. When the class earned all the parts of the map puzzle we had a class reward usually in the form of a secret treasure like watermelon, popsicles the playground.
I've also used treasure incentive charts with jewel stickers for earning a treasure from the teacher and had many different rewards like free computer time, sit with a buddy, pencil, etc.. in a treasure box for them to select. I wrote the rewards on gold coins which made it a lot of fun.
Anyway don't know that this would be anything you are thinking about but thought I'd share.

I'm planning on using an ocean/sea theme in my classroom and decided to call it Good Behavior Bay. All students start the day in Good Behavior Bay, which is basically an ocean scene. The studentís clip is moved down to a different color fish/sea creature for each consequence. (This is where you could still use your school's color system) Then to reward students who stay in Good Behavior Bay I pass out Treasure Tickets. This way there is an incentive to follow the expectations and it's all positive!

I would use the, yellow, blue...and use ocean patterns...maybe a green fish, yellow starfish, and blue octopus.

You could also just make colored cards and put these symbols at the top of the card.

For your good behavior board, you could use "Catch 'Em Being Good" from (CTP 1543).

I teach kindergarten and I am starting an ocean/beach/luau.... theme this year. I am looking for ideas for the behavior calendar. Our school does the typical green-good, yellow- 5min- blue- 10min, red- entire recess and note home or to principal. I would like this to be in a small area, because I don't want the main focus to be on it. I am making a bigger display for good behavior ("Fishing for Good Behavior"). Does anyone have any good ideas for this? Also, if you have any other good ideas to use in the classroom, that would be great! I'm new to this, but I've already gotten a lot of great ideas.

Thanks in advance...
