Use this certificate and possibly a treat to reward your secret student at the end of the day.
***Secret Student (Classroom Management Technique)***
-At the beginning of the day, the teacher picks one or more secret students. You can use name cards or popsicle sticks to select your secret students.
-During the day, the teacher secretly watches the Secret Student to see if he or she is displaying good behavior–on task, walking quietly in line, respectful, etc.
-At the end of the day, if the student has done a good job, the teacher reveals the student’s name and gives him/her a small reward (piece of candy or pick something from the treasure box) and a secret student certificate to take home. If the student has not done a good job, the teacher does NOT reveal the student’s name, but instead tells the class that the Secret Student was having a hard day (as we all do from time to time) and that he or she will probably do better next time.
