The WONDER ful positive reinforcement plan is a way for students to recognize when their peers are doing something right. Students make stronger connections to the book and are more mindful about their choices.
Have students brainstorm ways that they can be “Wonder ful.” For Example: helping someone if they don’t understand, sticking up for someone who is being bullied, etc.
Copy the “Wonder ful” slips and leave them in a designated spot in your room. Whenever a student notices another student doing something “Wonder ful,” they complete a slip with the student’s name and what they did.
In order to give students a “Standing Ovation,” you can either vote on the most “Wonder ful” thing a student did at the end of a certain time period, or you can recognize each student individually. A standing ovation ceremony works best for me when I celebrate at the end of the month.
