In my classroom I LOVE LOVE LOVE to reward my students for great behavior, working hard, showing creativity, being great friends, participating.... the list goes on and on and on!!! So... because I like to reward so much I often try and do larger rewards that have the students work toward a future goal together. I have started to create small incentive "word" programs for my classroom, and they have been wonderful! My kiddos LOVE earning letters to build a word for a specific type of reward or party.
Recently we had an incentive for a popcorn party with a movie. It was BIG DEAL!!! they went all out for this party and worked hard to earn their letters! We had so much fun!
Anyway, since this system seems to really work in my room I decided to make the resources I used for this cool incentive.
All you need to do is explain to the kiddos that in order to earn their party they must earn all the letters to spell out "POPCORN PARTY.' once they earn all the letters then they can receive their reward.
I promise you it works wonders and it is so easy!!
