At the beginning of the school year we listen to the song, "Katalina Matalina", by Dr. Jean. The students and I discussed what it means to have a "Heart of Gold". During the school year, if I catch a student doing something extra special, I will give him/her a heart of gold. The students are so proud of themselves when they earn one!
Add a little glue and sprinkle some gold glitter to the heart!
Great classroom management tool!
