"The Chart"

In Cinderella's class they have "The Chart."  She made us one for our home.  She, her sister and the dog all have clothes pins to go on the chart.

Essentially, it is a behavior chart.  In her words:  "Green means caution.  Yellow means slow down.  Red means you're done (no treat at the end of the day), chalkboard means you lose everything (recess and center time).  Here, we have it on the wall in the living room.  So the ledge is the chalkboard.   The chart starts over each day and everyone starts off on "home" again which is the black area on the bottom right corner.

The chart itself isn't all that funny aside from the fact that she made it and hung it up herself the other day.  What is funny is the fact that yesterday, Cinderella tattled on her little sister (which we do not like) and wanted to move Sleeping Beauty's clothes pin.  I said, "Cinderella..."

She stopped and then she said, "And I'll move mine too for tattling!"  HAHAHA

We might be on to something here...

Cinderella has started trying not to tattle by starting off the sentence, "Well, the thing is...."  And makes us drag it out of her.  She has been known to tattle on herself too!!

Today the poor dog "barked herself all the way to the top of the ledge" in a matter of minutes.  Cinderella's words, not mine.

I will keep you posted on the chart.  :)
