What teachers are saying about the Catchem’ Critter System

♥ "Thank you so much for creating this.  I do not use flip cards, clip-ups, or any other type of negative behavior system.  I was desperate to find something for my class this year.  I knew two days into the school year that it was going to get pretty bad and very quickly if I did not find something.  I have spent more money than I can count from TPT and Catchem Critters is by far the best purchase I have ever made" - Gwen D

♥ “Seriously AMAZING!!! I implemented this in my classroom and my first graders are hooked! Thank you for this amazing resource and all your hard work!” – Joya C.

♥ “My students are going crazy for this! I needed to revamp my behavior for the new year, so I gave this a shot. We started with the sample and fell in love! Thank you!” – Buyer

♥ “My students have loved this so much! It has been such an incentive for them to exhibit positive character traits! They get so excited to earn the critters and level up!” – Buyer

♥ “Wow! This product is amazing, and so much work to put together! I use the Class Dojo App in my classroom and these critters will fit right in. Can't wait to use this with my classes this year! Thank you!” – Susan K.

♥ My students love this product! This is one of the best purchases I have made from TPT for behavior. It helps me to stay focused on the positive rather than negative. My students are so proud to show off their critter booklet full of stickers. Can't wait to use it again next year. - Krista K.

♥ “This is one of the most creative behavior management programs I have come across. I love the critters, and I think my students will too. I have been getting things set up, and really appreciate the sticker option.” – Buyer

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.
