The do colored cards.. everyone starts the day at green and can move back to it if they get a different card durring the day.
Pink~ Incredible Day~ Exhibits exemplary behavior for the day, they will earn 2 stickers for their sticker folder, and get a Pink Award to take home.
Purple~Great Day~great behavior
Green~ Fine Day~Stay green by doing what they are supposed to be doing.
Yellow~ Warning~ chooses to not follow classroom rules.
Orange~ for the second infraction this is a 2nd warning
Red~ Poor Behavior~ The must sit out a entire recess and a note will get sent home.
Students recieving all green,purple,pink cards for the week will earn stickers.
Burbank Bucks~ As a school the principal give the teachers bucks so they can give bucks to students for following class rules and good behavior. When i student collects 10 Burbank Bucks they get to "shop" in the principals office.
Wow, I can't imagine having to keep track of all this as a teacher. Seems like the teacher's day would be spent entirely on management and no actual teaching or building relationships with students. I don't use a reward system in my classroom and it works great.
I'm a kinder teacher. Here's what I do: we do the traffic light signal idea, just red, yellow, green. Everyone starts on green and after a warning might move to yellow (think) and then to red (stop). At red the child fills out a behavior contract with me (dictates and draws what choice they made this time and what choice they'll make next time). Then they take it home and discuss it with a parent. They bring it back signed and I keep it in their (classroom) file so that I can see if patterns happen. At the end of the year I pitch them, btw. We only have someone on red maybe once a week. We really just don't need to go there very often.
From a parent's point of view - this system is one of the reasons why we decided to homeschool.
