Teaching Tips # 5 Make Rewards Work for You

Top Ten Tips # 3
Make Rewards Work for You

Give students relevant rewards for desirable behaviours, starting tasks, completing tasks, following class rules, etc. The goal is to establish the HABIT of co-operation. Standards can be subtly raised once the habit has been established. The easiest, quickest and most appreciated reward is DESCRIPTIVE PRAISE.
Other possible rewards, besides those used as a school-wide system are

  •   a note home to parents
  •    name on a special chart which earns a later tangible reward
  •   being given special responsibilities
  •   being allowed to go first
  •   having extra choices
  •   Creating Class Bank Account using school money
