This chart was designed to have siblings work together instead of in competition to earn rewards. This chart encourages pro-social behavior and positive sibling relationships. Families can choose their own three rules to get started.
This positive behavior chart is intended for siblings to use to work together!
“Work together to get the LEGO character to the house!”
How to set up the board:
1. Print out both pages on card stock (colored or white).
2. Laminate both pages
3. Velcro each square and the mini LEGO house
4. Find your children’s favorite LEGO character and put Velcro on his back.
5. Use a hole punch and put two O-Rings to put the pages together to make the chart fold up. Use a binder clip to keep the chart closed and to hang it up in the house
6. Use wet erase marker to set family rules
How to use the board:
· Create three positively stated family rules
· Teach, model and practice the rules as a family
· Pre-determine what each child would like to “earn” as a reward once the LEGO character gets to the house.
· As a parent, “catch” both children following one or more rules and advance the LEGO character one spot
· Be explicit on why you are moving the LEGO character. For example say “I caught you both keeping your hands to yourself so we can move the LEGO character. Only seven more and you get to the house. Keep up the great work.”
· Once the children get to the house they get the reward and you can start over if you want. Make sure to check in and see what they want to work for as a reinforcer
· When creating rules use positive language
· Give a forced choice of two-three rewards to make sure the rewards are doable for you and the family
· These rewards should not necessarily be huge items to work for. Small and consumable items may be a good start
· Make sure any reward you are using is not accessible during other times of the day.
· Remember, a reward is only considered a reinforce if it increases the desired behavior
· If you can’t find something reinforcing, continue to do reinforcement assessments until you find the right motivator
· Don’t move the character backwards. If the child doesn’t earn it, just don’t advance the character.
· Encourage “buy-in” by having the children earn the reward quickly at first.
