An Unusual Classroom Reward System

Instead of rewarding students with, classroom bucks, tickets, candy, or the like try using beads.  Students earn beads for good behavior which they string in their free time to make a necklace.  When students gain enough beads to string on their necklace, they are allowed to take the necklace home.  Students may take all year to build their necklace.  If you buy a variety of beads at a hobby store in bulk, then you may have some beads which are more sought after than others. For example, a soccer ball, basketball, or football bead may draw your boys’ attention.  If you decide to implement this system in your classroom, you will have to have a place for each student to store their beads so that they are not a distraction, and so that they don’t spill easily.  I used a small plastic cup (old country crock containers) hot glued to students’ desks.  If students play with their beads when they are not supposed to then take some of their beads.  This system does take some planning, but elementary students absolutely love it.
