I am not here to start a debate on this one, but I will say that I have had students who respond extraordinarily well to rewards, or reinforcers as some would prefer to call them. I don’t think that they are the end all and be all of classroom management, but they can be an easy way of adding some positivity.
With that being said, I refuse to continue buying items for a treasure box, or something of that sort. Instead I have a list in my classroom of one hundred things that my students can choose from, all of which cost my exactly $0. Now, I share that list with you, and stick around until the end of the post for a great FREEBIE!
Don’t get me wrong, none of these are groundbreaking, but they are here in one spot. I have these items hung up in my classroom as well as cut up on individual cards and placed in a small gift bag. When students have earned a reward they can draw a card from the bag as a “Mystery Reward.” They absolutely love it!
