|Current compliment rewards. I might let the kids |
pick one more of their choice....
This year, I'm sticking to compliments, but doing something a little different. I'd like to give credit to the person from where the idea came, but I don't remember if it was a pinterest, twitter, or Facebook brainstorm, so my appreciation to the originator, wherever they are.
|I could not find Scrabble tiles to save my life!|
I created my own for under $10 using
magnetic tape and scrapbooking stickers!
Here's the catch. (There is almost always a catch, right?)
The compliments can NOT come from me. The Thinkers must earn the compliments based on their behavior everywhere in the school except for the classroom. This means they need to be on their best behavior in the hallway, in the lunch line, in art, music, p.e., Spanish, media center..... even visiting parents! Guest teachers are particurlaly valuable in the compliment department, motivating the Thinkers to be on their best behavior even then! It works pretty darn well, if I do say so, to keep them on their toes!
