Caught Being Good - Part 2

My students need a variety of incentives, such as rings, pencils and bubbles, for when they are Caught Being Good.

My Students

Do you remember the last time that you were rewarded for being good? I am hoping to provide my first graders with incentives for doing the right thing.

I currently teach 27 very sweet first graders in a Title I school located in a high poverty and high crime area in Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I am currently trying to teach my six and seven year old students to help their classmates and to be kind to one another. Instead of focusing on the negative in my classroom, I want to focus on the positive. I want to catch my students doing the right thing. For example, if I notice a student comforting a sad child, I would like to reward them with an incentive such as pencils, bubbles or even rings.

Please help me to provide my first graders with incentives for when they are "Caught Being Good".

I can't wait to see the smiles on their faces when they get a prize for being kind to their fellow classmates.
