Token boards are used to help a student who is having challenging behaviors.
This token board is designed to accommodate the 8 period day.
In the morning, I have my 2nd grade students fill out the schedule according to the daily schedule and then throughout the day, after each period, they are accountable for checking into their board. In addition, I have my students set a goal for themselves for the number of tokens, in which they think they can achieve. On a sidenote, I do tell my students that they must choose at least half (12/24) and that they cannot choose the max amount of tokens (24/24).
I have created specific awards to go along with the token boards as rewards, and the students have generally been very receptive and excited to earn these. Students do not have to earn the reward, and you can be creative in coming up with a reward that they find motivating to work for.
I currently have 3 students in my classroom who use a token board and have found it to be greatly beneficial. My students keep the token boards on a clipboard at their desk during all periods of the day.
