I needed to add just a little bit of positive behavior incentive for my kiddos in these last few weeks. I found these cute bee baskets at Target a while back, and they go perfectly with our schoolwide RTI-B plan – we have a theme of bees!
I also found this cute little mystery prize box at Really Good Stuff. It was on clearance for $3!! I snagged 3 – one for each member of my K team!
Here’s how it works – the kiddos can earn a ticket for great behavior (in addition to building their rainbow pieces). They write their name on the ticket and put it in the bee basket. At the end of every day, I pull out one name from the basket. That person gets to dig in the mystery prize box for a little prize. The kids LOVE it! I love that they don’t have to wait until the end of the week for a name to be drawn – I remember better to give out tickets and the kids are excited every day!
It’s super easy – the kids love the tickets, and it doesn’t take any extra time or effort. I just throw some odds and ends in the prize box for prizes – whatever I have on hand.
How are you managing end of the year/spring fever behavior in your classrooms?
