I really want to have a reward system of sorts that is class wide and individual that isn't much work for me (as in keeping up with coupons or whatever). My idea is similar to the "marbles in a jar" technique but what I was thinking was I could have a jar for every class and when someone does something good (especially during the first few weeks and I'm trying to establish a routine) I would hand them a chip, possibly something like a poker chip so the jars are colorful: http://www.orientaltrading.com/appl...allpartial&y=0&N=0&x=0&sd=POKER+CHIPS+(100PC) But, before hand I would put masking tape or a white, round sticker on the face so the student can write their name on it before they put it in the jar. I would enlist my sister for help, but I would put the tape on all the chips before I started passing any out. Then, once a class reaches the top, the class would get a reward (on a Friday) and then individuals who contributed would get a different reward. Also, I want to point out that I want to use chips as opposed to tickets because I want that noise they make to be "exciting" and noticeable. Questions: - What do you think about this? - What class wide reward would you use? Maybe cookies? or a $1 coupon to Mcdonalds or aclose fast food place? - How would you address the individual tokens? Would you do a drawing for something or would you sort them out and kids with 1-5 gets a piece of candy, 5-10 get a soda, 10-15 a "5 points on homework" coupon... etc etc - Do you think something like this would work? Thanks for any advice.
