Reward your students for the points they earn on Class Dojo with these printable coupons. Just print on cardstock, cut, and organize in envelopes or a recipe card box. All of the rewards are free, except for the treasure chest. I ask parents for donations at the beginning of the year, and when the chest is emptied, that reward is removed from the choices.
Free Draw: 10 minutes of free drawing time at their desk or writing table
Stinky Feet: Take off your shoes in class
Read to a Class: Choose another class or stay in ours to read a book aloud.
Teacher's VIP: Runs errands, collects papers, or anything else I want them to do
Choose a Seat: If you have flexible seating, this could allow them to choose a different chair, or they can choose to change seats for the day.
Wear a Hat: Check with school dress code first or get administrative approval.
Snack Coupon: Allow them to bring a healthy snack to enjoy during class
Tech Time: 10 minutes of computer/iPad time
Treasure Chest: Choose one item from the treasure chest
No Homework: Choose one night to skip homework
30 second head start: They get 30 seconds to leave ahead of the class for lunch, recess, and/or specials for the whole day.
Class Dance Party: They get to choose 2 appropriate songs to dance to at the end of the day.
A blank set is available for custom prizes.
I left the points blank on the rules so you can change the quantity they need to earn depending on how you run Dojo in your classroom.
This is how I run it:
Each student gets one point at the end of the day if they met the CHAMP expectations for the day (with only 2 warnings). They can also earn points for getting compliments in the hall, a good report from specials, turning in homework, and caught being a leader by myself or a classmate. Students earn 10 points if they are caught being kind by another teacher (that means they earned a certificate from that teacher) and/or caught being a leader by another teacher (Leader in Me).
By the end of the week, students can earn 35 points for just being present and doing their job. I set my points like this:
36-45 Random Coupon
46-55 1 coupon
56+ 2 coupons
Random coupon means the student closes their eyes and chooses one coupon out of a bowl at random.
Stress Free Redemption of Coupons:
I have a mailbox in my classroom that students put their coupon into during cleanup the day before they want to use it. After class, I go through the coupons, write the date on the back, sign it, and place it back on the student's desk. This tells them the next day that they are able to use the coupon that day. If it is a reward that requires them to leave the group or class, I will write the time frame on the back in which they can use it based on our schedule for the day. (I teach 4th grade so they can do this. For younger grades, maybe say "after math"). If they forget to use their coupon during this time frame, then they can try to use it the next day if no other student requested the same reward. I follow a 3 strikes, your out policy. If they forget 3 times, they lose the coupon.
