Recently, Jax's daycare teachers introduced behavioral color charts for kids in class. Issy had these in Kindergarten, and she responded very well to it. I was really excited because I assumed Jax would be the same way. Why I thought this? I couldn't tell you. He is so completely different than Issy. He's got a mind of his own, and he knows what he likes and doesn't like. I can't reason with him half of the time...which I love....and hate...and ultimately makes me giggle all at the same time.
The color chart goes something like this:
Green = Great day!
Yellow = Warning.
Blue = discipline action taken
Red = bad day!
I know teachers use this, and the colors and meanings may vary, but this is what Jax's chart looks like. Everyday we get a little report from daycare with the way our children end the day. When I ask him about his day and what color he was on the chart that day, he looks at me with his big brown, eyes and says:
"Mommy, I was all the colors today!"
