Great way to promote a positive, supportive classroom environment.
I started using this award system when my students had a hard time getting along in gym class. They would come back to the room upset, fighting, and sometimes crying. I wanted them to focus on being kind while still being competitive.
Things turned around almost instantly. Students were complimenting each other and working hard to earn sportsmanship awards. I'm so glad I started doing this with my class, and other teacher saw my positive results and began using this award system too!
