You've got the rules. You've got the procedures. But how can you get your class as a whole to WANT to behave? Give them a fun incentive! Build-a-burger is a positive way to reinforce good choices and improve class-wide behavior.
How it works is quite simple: When you catch your class being good as a whole they earn the chance to add a piece of their burger to the board! Did they quiet down the moment you gave the signal? Reinforce that behavior with a piece. When the fire drill happened unexpectedly, did they line up the way they were supposed to? Reward them with another piece! Each piece earned will bring your class closer to a predetermined reward. Some of the most motivating rewards don't come from the dollar store... in fact they don't cost a thing. Check out this "Classroom Managers" set for included suggestions for how to do this and a list of free reward suggestions!
You can build one burger as a whole class using the included 10.75" wide Jumbo-sized burger or spark a little friendly competition by dividing your class into groups to battle for the tallest burger using the 7.25" Junior-sized burger pieces! Ketchup and Mustard bottles are even included to use for team names or board decorations.
All burger pieces come in two versions: full color and black & white. Black and white pieces can be copied onto colored construction paper or cardstock for quick and easy coloring.
As a bonus when you buy this Classroom Managers set, I have included a 6-page resource of my top 5 Classroom Management Tips to help you if you are just starting out your teaching journey or you've been at this for a while but are still trying to figure out how to fine-tune your management style.
What qualifies me to give advice on classroom management? Guys, classroom management is my jam. 17 years ago I was a frazzled teacher with a few years under my belt who spent my days surviving and my nights googling alternative jobs for people with a teaching degree. I entered a master's program for the bump in pay, spent 6 months of my life drowning in academic journals, and came out with a 100+ page masters thesis on the traits of effective classroom managers... and a totally transformed career. I LOVE this stuff.
