This year in addition to the E money, I am also putting into place the "Sweet Behavior" system. I saw this on someone's blog (don't know who the original author was:(( ) and loved it because it focuses on teamwork towards "good behavior" not just individual. I showed a pic of my cookie sheet a while back....here's another pic:
So, they will start the school year with an empty cookie sheet and earn cupcakes for different things such as: good transitions, good cafeteria behavior, great teamwork (the kids sit in Kagan groups and we do tons of team activities).....you get the idea. Once the cookie sheet is full, they as a class will earn a reward. One thing they always love to do is bring their lunch trays back to my classroom to eat, so that will be one reward. I made this poster to hang with my cookie sheet and am giving it as a freebie today:) I will confess, I struggled with whether to call it "Sweet Rewards" or "Sweet Behavior"....I settled on "Sweet Behavior" because that's what we are working towards as a team to earn the reward;) Enjoy your "sweet" freebie!
