I am also joining Holly at Fourth Grade Flippers for her Tried It Tuesday linky.
Since February I have been using a responsibility board to encourage proper behavior.  In the winter I had a snowflake with each students' name on the board, and the students had to earn the right to keep their snowflake on the board.  They earned  this through remembering to put supplies away, taking home their lunch box, marking their lunch choice in the morning, having assignment notebooks signed,etc.If they were responsible enough to keep their snowflake on the board until Friday, they earned a Berry Buck (our reward dollars) and some other small reward, like a homework pass.
Since Spring Break the students have had a flower or butterfly with their name on it posted on the responsiblity board.  I've been looking for new things to use as rewards, and found one last week on Diane's blog at Fifth in the Middle.  She was giving away sheets of tickets for trading desks.  I gave these out on Friday and the tickets have been a big hit!  Those who didn't earn one are now sorry they didn't. You can check out Diane's post and download the tickets here.

  1. I love the trade desks for a day idea. Your responsibility board is a great visual incentive. Thanks for sharing!
