Classroom Reward Coupons
Reward Coupons included in the pack and the meanings are as follows. I also added in when I do or do not allow them to use them for classroom management purposes. :)
No Shoes- Student is able to take off their shoes during class. But must wear them in the hallways and to lunch, recess and specials.
New Pencil-Student may get one new pencil from me. I use a plastic cylinder shaped canister from Walmart to hold them.
New Eraser-Student may get one new eraser from me. I use a plastic cylinder shaped canister from Walmart to hold them.
Snack in Class-Student may eat a snack in class. I require snacks to be healthy and not messy.
Line Leader-Student may be in front of the line for the day.
Be the Teacher for 5 min-Student may be the teacher for 5 minutes when the teacher says it is time. I usually allow students to use the iPad or SMART board to give positive points to students who are doing a great job!
No Homework-Student may gets a free pass on ONE sheet of homework. However, you may want to do it differently and that’s okay!
No Homework(Math Only) -Student gets a free pass on one sheet of math homework only. Since I usually only give math homework, if I give homework in another subject area, it really needs to be completed!
Sit by a Friend--Student may sit by a friend during class. If they disrupt the class one time, they must move back to their regular seats. ( I set this in place from day one, and it helps with classroom management.)
10 Mins Computer Time -Student may use 10 minutes of computer time when allowed by teacher. My students can take a Chromebook to their desk and play any school appropriate game/website.
5 Mins of Tech Time- Student may use 5 minutes of tech time when allowed by teacher. My students can take a Chromebook/iPad/their personal device to their desk and play any school appropriate app/game/website.
Sit at Teacher’s Desk-Student may use sit at the teacher’s when allowed by teacher. I usually only allow this for one class period.
Pick Your Own Partner-Student may pick their own partner when allowed by teacher. If they do not work well together, they are immediately moved.
Messenger-Student may take notes, papers and messages to office, and to other teachers when asked by teacher.
Positive Note Home-Student may get a positive note hand written by the teacher to be sent home.
5 Mins Drawing Time-Student may use 5 minutes of drawing time when allowed by teacher. They can draw at their desk, or find a spot on the floor. I also allow them to use my supplies.
Gum in Class-Student may use gum in class when allowed by teacher. I do not allow them to take it to lunch, recess or specials.
Draw on Board- Student may use draw on the board pass when allowed by teacher. If you want this can include whiteboards/ chalkboards or SMART boards.
Draw on SMART Board- Student may use draw on the SMART board pass when allowed by teacher.
Lunch Bunch With Teacher- Student may use lunch bunch with teacher when allowed by teacher. This allows a student to have lunch with their teacher, and they may also bring a few friends if they want to !
Listen to Music-Student may use headphones or earbud to listen to music when allowed by teacher.
I included a few different versions of the reward menus with different point values. One version is on a 0-50 point scale, the other is 0-100. I personally use the lower one because it coincides with how I give out points!
HOW TO USE IN YOUR CLASSROOM
I pick the coupons that work best for me and my classroom. I print them out and cut them ahead of time. I made them black and white for easy printing, since these will most likely be printed with multiple copies, or they can be laminated. I found a great container at Joann Fabrics that holds all of my coupons. So if you’re looking, that might be a great place to look!
If you use a point system rewards menu, I included a few different versions you can pick from. I usually pick the one with the lower points in my classroom, because that coincides with how I give out points. However, if you give more, I added a menu with higher points for the coupons!
If students switch between multiple classes like mine do, the teacher they give the coupon to writes their initials and the date, and the student is allowed to use it in the other rooms. Students usually just keep their coupons in a sandwich size Ziploc bag or in their pencil pouch. I always have their write their names in pen, that way if it gets lost, we know who it belongs to.
I personally use these along with ClassDojo, but they can be used for any reward system. You can make your own poster for how many points each is worth or use the ones I included. For my personal use, I have my students turn in their dojo points every Friday, and they collect their coupons then. To keep things simple, and well organized for my sanity, I do not allow roll over points. Every Monday we start we a fresh slate. However, they can keep their coupons for as long as they like!
