Behavior races are a great way to motivate students to stay on task and work quietly. We use them all the time when we are working with small groups or during writer's workshop.
Here's how they work:
1. Assign each table/group in your classroom a color or character.
2. Display the behavior race on your smart/active board or through your projector.
3. As each group demonstrates positive behavior, move their character forward on the board by clicking on the teams icon. The character will move forward as many spots as you choose. Retro sounds will play so students are aware of when their character has moved.
4. Award the team that reaches the end with a small reward, such as, candy or extra recess.
Great for use during Writer's Workshop or other times when you are working with small groups and need a quiet classroom environment. Great positive motivational tool.
