Bonus board - when the class collectively demonstrates expected behaviors (or exceeds expectations) pick a stick (numbered 1-100) & color in square corresponding to that number. Classroom party or bonus = 10 in a row.
This would make a great procedure (Harry Wong). Count to five or hold up one finger at a time when the class needs to refocus. Discuss what occurs for each number at the beginning of the school year and eventually the reaction will be automatic.
I love this because it specifys exactly what the students should do and identifies things that have consequences so there are no surprises With some adaptation this could be good for homeschooling too.
FREEBIE! I’ve found that the most effective way to keep things calm (yet still fun!) in my classroom is to constantly mix up my reward system! My expectations always stay the same, but how I reward positive behavior is constantly changing. In order to keep things fresh and fun, we started using this motivating Bravo Behavior Board I made up in our classroom.
