This is the time of the year when we need to do something special to keep the attention of our students and make it through to Winter Break! I have adapted my "Mystery Walker" classroom management kit so that it will work for the holidays! This system is so easy to manage and so effective! Just copy the numbers and put into a jar or container. Before leaving your classroom to go to recess, lunch, etc. the teacher reaches in and picks a number and keeps the number secret. The students will not know who "Santa's Helper" is until you reach your destination. The teacher is watching that student down the hall and if they do a good job they are praised. If the student did not do a good job the student is not identified but the class knows that they will need to try next time! If the student did a good job then when returning to the classroom they get to put a cube of some type into a jar. When the jar is full the whole class gets some type of reward. I have used a Read and Feed and also an educational movie. The students love this system and it has been so successful! I am planning on also using it in the classroom during work times, literacy station times, etc. Draw a number, keep it secret until work time is over and then reveal who Santa's Helper was! I can't wait to use this during the holiday season!

A "Santa's Helpers" poem poster
32 classroom numbers for your jar
Black and White "Santa's Helper" certificates
