Classroom Rewards System
To motivate and reward my students for following the rules and exhibiting good behavior I will have a whole class rewards system in place. Basically, the system works as follows:
There will be an empty fishbowl sitting on my desk. If students exhibit good/positive behavior, a marble (or 2) will be placed in the fishbowl. The marbles can be earned individually (ex: helps a classmate, follows rules, ect), or as a class (ex: everyone follows directions, everyone completes their homework assignment ect.). Once the fishbowl is full, the class will earn a reward such as .... a movie, extra recess/free time, computer time, or pizza party, ect.
* Parents will recieve a letter explaining how the system works.
