U SING T ABLES TO C REATE A B EHAVIOR T RACKER The Table tool in Word lets you easily create a grid of rows and columns that can be used to organize all types of classroom data. In this exercise, you will create a Behavior Tracker like the one you see below. Your Behavior Tracker is a relatively simple table that can be used to graphically reinforce appropriate classroom behavior. By placing a star or check mark in the appropriate columns, a child can see visual reinforcement for their actions. You can laminate it after printing to make it reusable each day. Follow the step-by-step instructions on the subsequent pages to create this handy class management tool. Be creative with the names and graphics used for this project. This project should include 9 students and 4 behaviors. Start a new Word document by click on the shortcut to Microsoft Word or using the Start Menu – Programs – Microsoft Office – Microsoft Word. A blank document now should be on your screen in MS Word. To Create the Table: Click on the Insert tab Click on the Table button Click on Insert Table… Now a Table Dialog Box will appear

To Set Table Size: When you click on the Table option, a menu like the one you see to the right will appear. To create the size table needed for the Behavior Tracker, • Type 5 in the column space and 11 in the row space. • After entering these two numbers, click OK . The table that will appear in your document will look like the one to the right. This is the basic table format. From this point we can enter data and enhance the table with interesting fonts, graphics, and shading. To begin the Behavior Tracker, you will need to have a single long row across the top of the table for your title. This single long row is created by merging the individual cells in the original table into a single cell that stretches across all of the columns To Merge Cells: First highlight all of the cells in the first row by clicking in the left most cell, holding the mouse button down, and then dragging the pointer across all the adjacent cells in that row. You will have selected and highlighted the first row as shown below. Then, with the first row highlighted, right click with the mouse. Select the option Merge Cells. With this done, it is now time to try entering data into the table.

When entering data, you move your insertion point to the cell in which the data is to be entered and then just type the information in each cell just as you would with any document. However, the TAB key works
