Use these scrabble letters and phrases to make a fun and easy class reward system. The first set (in a dashed border) is to cut out and display for the class. Next, cut out the individual letters that match and stick into a cloth bag. This is similar to a marble jar system, but the students get to pick their reward depending on what scrabble phrase they finish first.
In my classroom, we start the day out with two tallies on the whiteboard. If they do an awesome job, I give them extra tallies throughout the day, but if they are off task or noisy, I remove a tally. At the end of the day, I pick students to draw one scrabble letter out of the bag for every tally they have on the board. This allows students to have some say in what reward they want to reach, yet it also ensures the rewards are of little to no cost to me. My 4th graders love it!
I used magnetic tape for the phrases and letters. The phrases are displayed on the front of my desk, along with the baggie of letters. Since the letters also have magnetic tape on them, they can be stuck directly on the phrases once they have been drawn out. Once they students fill up one phrase, I take all the letters down, and we start again.
