I love setting goals with my class and they love working hard together to reach the goal. Every morning, it has become part of our daily routine to shade a piece of the pie chart if everyone is present. They get so excited! It has encouraged many of them to want to be at school.
We send homework home nightly so I needed something that would encourage them to bring back their homework everyday. In the mornings we do a quick check to see if all homework was returned by 100 percent of the class and then we shade in a piece of the homework chart. I have also shaded in pieces for other important school papers that are brought back by 100 percent of the students also.
We have a set of classroom rewards that the students choose at the beginning of the year. They get to vote for the class reward every time we fill up a pie chart. (Example- lunch in the classroom, bring a stuffed animal, extra free time or recess time, etc.)
