Why Use the Catchem’ Critter Behavior Management System?
There are many things we need to know as teachers that they do not teach you in college. One of the things I wish they would teach students- one thing I
truly wish I had a class on, is classroom management
Sure, we learn as we go- but wouldn't it be great if we went into the classroom with a clear idea of how to do this? If we could start Day 1 with an awesome behavior management plan worked out and prepared? My first year would have been a lot different.
I have used many different kinds of incentives in my classroom: stickers, Class Dojo, positive notes home, Star Student, Dolphin Dollars, etc. These things work- but I wanted to add something this year that would really get kids excited. Something that would be brand NEW and very motivating.
That's when I came up with the Catchem' Critter Behavior Management System!
The Catchem' Critter Behavior Management System is a new twist on motivating and encouraging positive behaviors with children. With this system, all children are collectors and their goal is to catch as many critters as possible and advance as many levels as possible.
Children catch new critters by making positive choices. New critters are given at the teacher's discretion. This system is an engaging alternative to giving out tickers, tags, etc.
Students will collect Critter Cards/Stickers when they are caught making positive choices. They will store these critters in booklet called a Critter Keeper. Upon completing each group, they will “level up” and receive a certificate and/or reward coupon.
Each Critter Card provides the name, picture, number, size, type, and description of a different critter. There are 50 critters in this system.
Every critter embodies a positive character trait. This is a great opportunity to expand your student’s vocabulary, expand on character trait instruction, and explain/encourage ideal traits.
Student LOVE catching critters. Teachers LOVE how it reinforces positive choices allowing for a classroom environment that is cooperative and successful.
