These free token systems can be used for elementary-aged children for behavior management and behavioral support or reinforcing correct responding or being on-task in working. There are 2 themes included: Princess and Train. For more themes and systems set up with 10 and 5 token slots, see the expanded version at Thumbs-up Token Systems for Behavior Management
I have set them up with 10 slots to earn the reinforcer, but if you have a student who needs reinforcement more quickly, cover the slots you don’t need (e.g., cover the lower 5 and have them work for 5 tokens to get the reinforcer).
I included thumbs up visuals that can be used as tokens, but the boards will also work well with pennies or other coins. I like buying cute buttons from the fabric store, putting velcro on the back (pop the loop off the back if you need to) and using those. Of course be careful about whether the student is one who might eat small objects. You could also use a dry erase marker to put stars in the boxes as tokens (less pieces to lose).
I avoid using thumbs-down as I want to assure the attention goes to the positive behavior. However, in some instances, I would use response cost and take away a token. But remember not to use this very often or the child will give up on the system because he or she can never win.
I have included some visuals for common reinforcers.
I hope your students enjoy them as much as mine have.
