PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Incentives for Middle School and High School Students is a great behavioral management system. Students are able to earn reward incentives through their kinds deeds, actions, and performance in class. This is great for those students who need a little incentive to get busy on an assignment or who need a little praise for effort. These are great for students in grades 6-12! My students love them!

I keep these reward incentives in an index card holder for easy access, and it takes up less space around my desk. The students are able to ‘cash-in’ their incentives at certain times that I set up in the classroom. I have found these reward incentives save me a lot of time correcting bad behavior, and we are able to focus more on learning. The great thing about these incentives is you can use them year after year!

The 20 incentives included are: No Homework Pass, Extra Credit: +5 on an Assignment, 2nd Chance Card, Sweet Tooth, Music to My Ears, Thirst Quencher, Hungry-Hungry Student, Errand Runner, Computer Time, Teacher in Training, Teacher's Chair, Free Time, Free Write, Journal Pass, Library Time, Get to the Point, On the Down Low...Floor Time, Reader Leader, Next Top Designer, and If You Build It.

There are some great incentives in here. However some also seem like punishments -such as sharpening pencils
On  August 18, 2013Right Down the Middle with Andrea answered:
No, my students who like to get up and move around, love sharpening the pencils. I usually give the students a choice as to what incentive they are getting, so that it is one that they will work for. I tried to tailor the incentives to the variety of things my students enjoy doing. Thank you for your purchase and feedback!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  July 30, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I was wondering how you use this system. I'd like to purchase, but need more info!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 31, 2013Right Down the Middle with Andrea answered:
Thank you for your interest in this product! I use this anytime I "catch" a student using good behavior. I really try to make a big deal over good behavior. This was what I came up with that middle school and high school students responded positively to. The students may redeem their incentive slips for the reward specified. Some rewards can only be redeemed on certain days, but you can set up how often they can redeem them and on what days. Some rewards can be redeemed any day.

Here is what I use the following incentive cards for in my classroom: (These are only three examples.)

1. Next Top Designer- My students LOVE to help decorate my classroom. I have students who need to walk around, so if it is a day that I am going to re-do a bulletin board to follow along with changing of the standards, I might let one use a "Next Top Designer" card to go get a roll of butcher paper (or cut the specified amount from the work room). Our letter machine is in our library, so I send my paper and the letters I need with a student, and the student gets to punch out the letters I need. Depending on if a student is caught up with their reading and writing, I may even let them put up the paper and letters for the bulletin board.

2. If You Build It- I always keep Legos in my classroom. I use them for an expository/informational writing each year that the students love. After we complete that writing assignment at the beginning of the year, my students always beg me to let them play with the Legos when they are finished with their work. (This past year I taught 7th grade ELA, so they never get too old for Legos.) If you do not have Legos in your class, this may not work for you. However, I would suggest getting some because you can use them for writing, enrichment, etc.

3. Get to the Point- I have a cup in my classroom where students borrow a pencil if they forget to bring one or if their pencil breaks. Most of the time, the students return them pencils unsharpened. This incentive card allows a student to get the cup and sharpen all pencils that are in the cup. This gives them a chance to stand a bit, and it helps me out because the sharpening is finished. I also have marker, crayon, and colored pencil boxes that I allow students to organize. They can check to make sure the markers work; if they are out of ink, they get thrown away so they do not continue to take up space. They can sharpen the colored pencils so they are ready for the next time we need them in class. Small crayon pieces get thrown out as well.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me at a_m_bentley@yahoo.com.

Hello...I really love the product I purchased, but somehow part of the graphics got lost in conversion. I have the latest version of Adobe Reader, but for some reason when I convert your file, some of the letters and graphics get all goofed up! Is there any way you could send me the original word file so I can print these? Thanks for your time. Lisa Becker
