Gold for Good Behavior!

Oh man... when it comes to behavior my little sweeties have been struggling lately! I think spring fever has kicked in and all they want to do is go outside and play in the sunshine (too bad it is going to snow this weekend)... My old tricks haven't exactly been working, and so I had to come up with something new. 

Since it is March, I created a behavior management packet called Gold for Good Behavior. I have been using this with my students for a few days now and it is working like a charm! 
I have divided my students into three teams: Team Shamrock, Team Leprechaun, and Team Ireland (these teams, and lots more, are available in the packet). Whenever I see a student with exceptional behavior, then they get to add a gold coin to their team's pot-of-gold. When a team fills up their pot-of-gold, then they get to have lunch in the classroom with me (lots of other reward suggestions are available in this packet, too)! 

I put everything on a black poster board and then laminated it. My students put the gold coins on with sticky tack (I sticky tack each coin ahead of time). The poster is in a place where everyone can see it.

I am excited to use this behavior management system the entire month of March!

What are some of your behavior management tricks?!

  9. Good behavior must be encourages and appreciated at schools every day, even if it demands some praising and encouragements with some kind of gold coins. When the children tend to behave better once they have deserved a smiley face or a sticker for their work, then all the teachers should reevaluate their teaching techniques and consider changing them to friendlier methods of teaching of their kids. But is the kids want to buy good essays online in the future, they will get a better mark than just a gold coin.


thanks for the love ♥
