Use these handy certificates to reward students who exhibit excellent behavior in the library! They can be used as part of a larger behavior management program (see my experience below), or as a stand-alone recognition of great behavior.
I had a few classes that were being disruptive during their weekly book exchanges (which can occur at the same time I'm doing projects with other classes)--outside voices, not using shelfmarkers, leaving books on the floor, running, etc. When I started doing this library star “game,” it was like I was seeing a new group of kiddos!
I wrote everyone's names on Popsicle sticks, along with things like “whole class” and “someone wearing blue,” then pull one before that class come to check out (really so I make sure I get to all students at some point!). If they follow all library rules, they earn this certificate to bring home, and the right side goes into the library raffle jar for the end of each month. I have some typical prizes for them to choose from, but most of my kids go right for the “free” prizes, like having lunch with me or an extra book checkout ticket! Now checkout is fun for everyone!
Any questions or comments, please let me know! Any feedback and reviews are greatly appreciated.
