Because our class is centered around reading, our bulletin boards will be centered around books and authors. One of our bulletin boards will contain a certain number of slots where books can be placed. For every time the class makes it through the week with no more than two people breaking one of our classroom rules, one of the slots can be filled with a book. For every 5 slots that are filled, I will bring in snacks and we can read for half the period. This, I found, is a great motivator for students!!
**For students that are having a harder time following the rules than the rest of the class on a consistent basis, other arrangements can be made for those particular individuals.
