Bright Ideas * Table Points Reward

Saturday, August 16, 2014
I love finding new behavior management ideas on Pinterest or just having them come to my brain at 2am!  I'm teaming up with the amazing teachers in the monthly Bright Ideas Blog Hop to share my idea with you for August! 

This can truly work for any age group K-5 because the younger or older kids would enjoy this reward.  So my students work hard all week earning table points as one of my reward systems ( I have several in place ) as do most of you.  I used to have the entire table go to the treasure chest but it got crowded/loud and annoying over there.  You know what I'm talking about ~ I see your head nodding. 
So I happen to have a very talented mom in law that made me  these but you can find some on etsy OR you can pick them up fairly cheap in a teacher store or Lakeshore Catalog.  The table that earned the most points that week gets the chair pockets for the entire upcoming week.  Here is what mine look like:

So ~ this is a simple idea that won't cost you a lot if you shopped around since you will only need  4 - 6 of them instead of an entire class set of 20 - 25.  Also it's kind of a novelty because they would only earn them once in a while.  Give it a try and tell me what you think on one of my social media spots:  read about where you can find me:

  1. Great idea Vicky. I purchased some cute chair covers at Target a few BTS seasons ago. But, I only got 2. I am going to keep my eye out for the 4 that I will need so the whole table can have them. I need all the tips and tricks I can get my hands on this year! Thanks for sharing.
