I use this pig chart as a behavior management technique in my classroom. I put my student’s names in the box in the left hand corner and print. After printing it out, I paste it to black construction paper and laminate. After laminating, I put 10 velcro (either the soft or rough side) circles on the pig. I then get fake pennies (either play money or you can print out pennies) and put velcro (the opposite of the side I did on the pig) on those as well. I then stick all the pennies in a box. Throughout the day as students are doing well, they receive a penny. I usually give them a penny after each activity we do, which is why I put 10 velcro circles down, however feel free to put as many or as little velcro circles as you want. My kiddos need constant positive reinforcement throughout the day which is why I chose 10. At the end of the day, I have the students count up their pennies and write the number on their chart. If the students have all 10 pennies, they get to go to the treasure box!
IMPORTANT: The goal of this chart is positive reinforcement. I never take away a penny once a student has one, they just simply do not go to the treasure box at the end of the day if they do not have all their pennies.
