good behavior in my classroom. I usually have a bunch of different
incentives going at any given time (like our Compliment Jar or Secret
Star). But most of those are only relevant
in the classroom, which
might not be possible this year. But guess what? I have
an idea that I never shared, that works virtually as well as
you can’t offer your kiddos incentives!! Say hello to SUPER STUDENT
TICKETS, which can be used in a whole group setting or individually,
depending on your situation.
Kiddos can earn tickets
throughout the day or week— the more the better!— and at the end of the
week, draw a few names to win something. It works wonders for class
participation and behavior!! Students are always eager to earn
a ticket with their name on it (by raising their hands, following
directions, neat handwriting, etc.).
It’s easy to open and has space for a cute sign.
It comes in 10 colors so you can get one to match your room!
Tickets also come
in a variety of colors!
MANY fun options, from choosing a fun Zoom background to wearing
something silly or choosing a special book for story time. Other
favorites include bringing a stuffed animal to class, extra break
time, and teacher’s helper.
“buy” prizes. This works great in the classroom (have students
hold onto their tickets and at the end of the week, they can pick a
prize based on how many they’ve earned) or even at home with your own
little ones! I won’t lie, I am not above bribing my own kid! Summer is a
virtual first grader and loses focus at times. She can earn a
certain number of tickets per day and turn them in for something at
the end of the week. She loves it!
