When I’ve been having a challenging day, my colleagues have been known to shout/whisper at me, “Just CHAMP it, Meach!” I return the favor if they seem to need it. In 2012, several of us took a CHAMPS class together. It was a blast and we learned a lot. It was actually my second time experiencing a CHAMPS class, as I had attended a 2-day workshop two years prior. CHAMPS is a great classroom management system. If you are a PBIS school, CHAMPS would work well for the classroom-side of PBIS, because it complements a school-wide positive behavior system very well. There are several aspects of becoming a CHAMPS classroom. I’ll highlight CHAMPS boards in this post.
CHAMPS is an acronym that stands for Converstation, Help, Activity, Movement, Participation, and Success. I’ve noticed that some teachers change the “s” to Signal or Supplies. In the downloadable file, you’ll find several pages of CHAMSP boards for the Smartboard. My kiddos have really responded well to the implementation of CHAMPS boards into our classroom. Feel free to adapt/modify the file if you wish!
