CHAMPs reflects the "categories" or "types" of expectations that you have for students in your classroom during activity and/or transition.  These icons can help provide visuals in the teaching of your expectations.

Conversation (Can students talk to each other during this activity/transition?)
Help (How can students get questions answered during this activity/ transition? How do they get your attention?)
Activity (What is the task/objective of this activity/transition? What is the expected end product?)
Movement (Can students move about during this activity/transition?  e.g., Are they allowed to get up to sharpen a pencil?)
Participation (What does appropriate student behavior for this activity/transition look/sound like?  How do students show that they are fully participating?
