Updated with 15 more reward coupons & $50 + $100 money options!
Are you looking for a classroom management system with a Hollywood twist? Here it is! Included in this system is an explanation of how to use it, classroom money, 40 reward tickets and a behavior chart.
I have spent the last several years trying to find a behavior management system that works best for my classroom. Some methods seemed too time consuming, meaning I stuck with them for only a short time. I think I have finally found a system that I love, and so I hope you love it, too! Please remember that each set of students is different, so tweak this system to best fit the needs of your class. It’s a very simple system, with 2 ways to implement it. I have tried both ways, and honestly utilize both. I use the behavior chart, and still immediately pay out when a student does something amazing or shows awesome “star behavior.”
Option 1: Using the daily behavior chart
•Each day, students begin on “Ready to Learn.”
•Based on student behavior, they may move up and down on the chart, as you see fit.
•At the end of the day, have students record in their planners/agendas where their clip is located (for documentation purposes & for parents to see).
•Before students leave, “pay out” your students.
•Be sure to create a value for each level on the chart. For example: “Red Carpet Behavior: $5, “Royalty”: $4. Make sure students know what they are working for!
•On Fridays (or whatever day you choose), open your class “store.” Let students use their money to purchase the reward coupons and whichever other prizes you offer.
Option 2: Immediate Pay-Out
•With your class, create a list of rules that everyone agrees on.
•Then, create a list of opposites—of behaviors that deserve applause.
•Explain the behavior system to students, highlighting that good behavior deserves to be rewarded. On the flip side, poor behavior has consequences, meaning either losing money or not getting any more money.
•Together as a class, make a list of positive and negative behaviors, and how much money they are worth or how much money will be taken away.
•On Fridays (or whatever day you choose), open your class “store.” Let students use their money to purchase the reward coupons and whatever other prizes you offer.
