Bird Cage Behavior Management (Monday Made It)

Linking up a little late for 4th Grade Frolics Monday Made It! I usually try to post this in the morning, but I've been unpacking my new apartment all weekend! 

Check out my new behavior management system! 

I bought these darling bird cages at Hobby Lobby. I had to buy two pink, though, because they only had these four colors. But I had a plan...

Spray paint fixes ALL! 

So now, I have a red, yellow, green, blue, and purple bird cage! 
This matches my tables in my classroom perfectly. 

These are two examples of the way that I label my sets of desks. They have a tissue paper puff and a table sign. I am going to match my bird cages to these puffs so the students know which cage is theirs.  

I am labeling each table with a number, too. My table labels also have numbers on them, too. That way students can identify their bird cage by color and number. 


I think I will fill them with colored Poms each time a student does something positive:
-turning in homework on time
-fills their buckets
-moves up the clip chart

Poms will be placed in their matching bird cage! 


  1. SIMPLY adorable! What a great find and idea! The colors rock!

    I am your newest follower, so glad I found your blog!


  2. This is a great idea! I am thinking about color coding my tables this year. I love the coordination between the tables and classroom management incentive.

  3. So super cute! This got me thinking about trying to do something similar with our football theme this year. Thanks

  4. I can't wait to see how you end up using the adorable bird cages in your classroom. I have been obsessed with all the colorful bird cages and lanterns in the stores this summer. I may do something similar in my classroom. Thanks for the idea.

  5. Love that idea! I also love the classroom decor!!

    My suggestion is to use the really gigantic pom poms. I think the smaller ones will end up falling out of the cages at the sides.
