To go along with the Olympics, my friend and I came up with an awesome idea to help you and your students maintain positive behavior. We cut letter size manilla folders into eighths and put each child's name at the bottom. These cards are then Velcro-ed onto the side of each child's desk for easy reference and privacy. We put a piece of Velcro in the center to hold gold, silver, and bronze medals. Each medal signifies a level of behavior. Gold represents a students who has stayed positive and on task. Each day a students has "Stayed Gold" they will receive a certificate. If they stay Gold all week, they earn extra recess or some other privilege. You can even reward students for staying gold all quarter or year. It gives those students who are less than perfect an opportunity to work towards something positive and it shows our appreciation to the students who are always well behaved. It's a great way to monitor student behaviors and for students to self check!
