hey guys, first year teacher here. I have just started a new reward system in my 3rd grade class today. So far I am very happy with it! The kids have been amazing!!! I know that it is only the first day but I hope it keeps working!! I have a pretty crazy group.... they were getting a lot of negative consequences, like losing recess etc....It wasn't helping with classroom management at all. I did have a positive part but it was too hard for some students to achieve. It is relatively simple..... the class is split into teams, they can earn points for positive actions. The team with the most points at the end of the month gets to choose their own positive reward, pizza, ice cream, or electronics party etc. I had them come up with team names and each team has a leader for the week too. Students will sit with their team for the whole month. It gives them something to work for and it gives the students some accountability as the rest of their table tells them to behave so they can get points.
