I teach a third grade class in California. "How many points do I have?" is a common question from my third grade students. Last year, I created a classroom behavior management plan. This is a points-based system in which students earn points for completing the classroom assignments and following the class rules. Every Friday, the students can cash in their points for either a small, medium or large prize, depending on how many points they have. I have found that students love to add up their points for the week and ponder whether they will save their points for a bigger prize or cash them in. Initially, I was hesitant to provide extrinsic motivation for my students. I have found, however, that some of my students, especially the ones with emotional and behavioral disorders, initially need to work toward a reward. They seem to need the reassurance that they did a good job. Once the students become more confident in themselves, I find that the points and prizes become secondary. My students need pencils, bookmarks, stamps, and eraser heads. I usually try to purchase small games, toys and school supplies for the prize containers. The school supplies are my favorite prizes because I know that it's probably something that my students' need to replace throughout the year. School supplies are also expensive and a financial strain for their parents to purchase. Therefore, I am requesting prizes to put into the small, medium and large containers.
