As a new teacher, I am looking for some opinions from those with more experience with Kindergarteners. I came up with a positive reinforcement reward system that I think should work well, but can you tell me what you think? Print a copy of the calendar for the month for each child. I would start this in October, since they will know the rules well enough by then. Tell them, “You can earn up to 2 stamps every day, for being a Super Student. If I have to remind you of the rules too many times, you will lose a stamp that day, and if you are really misbehaving or being unkind, you will lose both stamps. So let’s make sure we are all being Super Students every day!” (In reality, you would never take away both stamps, as that could really make them feel like they “failed.” You would always give at least one stamp per day on the calendar.) Tell them that if they don’t have ANY blank days on their calendar at the end of the month (and none of them will), they can pick a special prize. (So really, everyone will get a prize each month, but they will have to have "earned it.") The prizes will just be small Dollar Store type items, but I will try to have a good variety. Thanks in advance!
