This technique works very well with second and third grade. I use a chart from any teacher's supply store. I put each student's full name on the chart. Students receive a check for transitioning smoothly from one activity to another, following directions the first time they are given, staying on task and completing classwork, etc. These are my classroom rules. There are approximately 24-26 boxes per student. The first student to reach the end of the chart is the first place class achiever. I award the four top achievers with a certificate of achievement and a bouquet of decorated pens, pencils and erasers. I make it into a mini award ceremony by inviting the principal or other staff members. The whole process includes pictures with me! They love it! Everybody wants to be a classroom achiever!
