Blurt Chart using Post-it Notes!

I posted a picture today on Instagram and received a lot of questions about it, so I thought I would do a quick blog post tonight!
The original inspiration comes from A 2nd Grade Adventure. It was one of the first pins I had on Pinterest way back when I first opened an account!
I liked the name (“Blurt Chart”) and I liked the post-it idea, but I modified it a bit to fit what I wanted for my classroom!
How it works:
I added post-it notes and numbered them for each of my students (They will use their class numbers). Each time they blurt out, I will just point to the chart, and they have to go put a tally mark on their post-it note.  The blurt chart will be up all week. I plan on putting up new post-it notes on Monday.
Then I had my students come up with their own rewards/consequences for the Blurt Chart, which they loved!!
Here’s what they came up with:
I told them the amount of money they earn will depend on how many people there are without tally marks. I’m planning on about $5 (once again, classroom money), but if we have a tough week and there are only a couple students left without marks, I might pay them up to $20! 
They are so excited about the blurt chart, and I love how they have total buy-in since they created their own rewards and consequences!
Do you use a “Blurt Chart” in your classroom? Are you going to try it out? I would love to know!

  5. I use a blurt chart as well. I use 3 volcanoes..but there are some children that need more than that. I'm going to try the post-it with tallies. I also have classroom money. so that will work too. thanks

  6. I had an old blurt chart. I may have to use your idea! I like the tallies!
