Welcome to the Indiana Bloggers Blog Hop! I hope you have been able to make it to all of the great blogs. I would love to thank Hilary Gard at Second Grade is out of this World for linking up with me! If you have not been to her blog yet check her out!
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for stopping here! I have this adorable freebie for you in my TpT store Teaching Ever After!
I have been doing this whole classroom management plan for years in my classroom. This year I decided to tweak it a little to work with my theme. Now I can't stop making them! This one says "We Are Racing Towards The Good Behavior Finish Line". Every time you catch your whole class being good or they receive a compliment you move the race car driver. Sometimes if they are REALLY good you can move the race car driver a few letters. This gets the kiddos really ramped up and they try even harder! When the class gets to the checkered flag you pull from the reward cards. I was thinking it would be really cute if you could find one of those large cup trophies to put the reward cards in.
This year my class got to the end. I picked "Show and Tell". I thought they would be so disappointed, but since they aren't allowed to bring toys to school they couldn't have been more thrilled. I had each child bring their object in a bag and they needed to have 3 clues about it. Some of the clues were fantastically written. I had one little girl bring in a garbage bag with one of the BIGGEST stuffed elephants I had ever seen! I wanted to keep him. The other kids brought in trophies, pictures, favorite stuffed animals, or something that represented their favorite things. It really was fun!
When they reach the end you start all over. It is the end of the year and my students are STILL working so hard to get to the end again. I don't have the heart to tell them that it probably isn't going to happen with only 7 days left, and why would I do such a ridiculous thing!
Thanks for pit stopping here! Grab my button before you go. I hope you enjoy the freebie!
