PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is one of the most used visuals in my classroom: the "I am working for..." board!

This system is a visual board that says "I am working for..." with space to velcro a picture of the chosen reinforcer and space for 3-5 stars. The student will pick a reinforcer from the choice board of visuals for all items. While working, the teacher can deliver stars for good behavior or correct responses. Once the student gets all the stars, he/she earns the reinforcer.

This packet includes:
- a 3 and 5 star "I am working for..." board
- stars for the board
- a 4 and 8 space choice board
- 30 different visuals for common reinforcers (including technology items, food, toys, break, and special activity)

---- includes directions for set up and use!

This is GREAT for children with autism, ADHD, cognitive impairments, or even learners who are more visual and need more structure! This can be used for academic or behavioral responses. Useful for teachers, parents, or therapists!

On  January 5, 2013,  Buyer asked:
What do you do if/when a child does not earn all the stars for a particular station?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 6, 2013Sasha Hallagan answered:
Great question! So it depends a little on the student. I have some kids that could potentially get super upset if they don't get their reward. Sometimes I want to go there - to make the stars meaningful - ie. you don't do your work you really won't get your reward. A few options:
- they lose the reward - but make sure they have an additional opportunity to earn something available. Ie. you lost your reward opportunity at teacher time but you can now earn another one if you do all your work at work station. Basically you don't want to leave them with no other option or you may have a huge tantrum on your hands
- wait it out - if it's a 'want to' problem (they can do the work but don't want to) let them take their time and do - they just may earn less reward time
- provide options for work (maybe the work is too hard?) provide a similar task option in place of the task at hand.

Does this help? Let me know if you have other questions!
