Reward Coupons and Incentives for Middle School and High School Students as a Positive Behavioral Management System for the Classroom
Incentives for Middle School and High School Students
Reward coupons and incentives for Middle School and High School Students is a great behavioral management system. Students are able to earn reward incentives through their kind deeds, actions, and performance in class. This is great for those students who need a little incentive to get busy on an assignment or who need a little praise for effort. These are great for students in grades 5-12! My students love them!
I keep these reward incentives in an index card holder for easy access, and it takes up less space around my desk. The students are able to ‘cash-in’ their incentives at certain times that I set up in the classroom. I have found these reward incentives save me a lot of time correcting negative behavior, and we are able to focus more on positive behaviors and learning. The fabulous thing about these incentives is you can use them year after year!
There are two versions included in this download: a color version of the 32 rewards and incentives and a black and white version of the rewards and incentives. I have included a handout stating what I use each incentive for so it will give the teacher an idea; however, please tailor them to your classroom and students.
