Reward Binder and Back to School Sale

It's been a long time since I've visited my blog. I have to be honest, it has been nice to focus on my family and summer vacation instead of being consumed with TPT and planning!  Now that it is August, I need to get my mind thinking kindergarten!

In the past, I used a treasure chest in my classroom to reward good behavior. I found that the little trinkets and prizes were not interesting my kids and choosing from the treasure chest took forever in the most chaotic ten minutes of the day: dismissal.

This year, I'm going to try using a reward binder. Students will earn punches or stamps on a punch card for good behavior. Once their punch card is completed, they will get to pick from the reward binder. The reward binder includes only FREE rewards. No more trips to the Dollar Spot for me!  The kids will get a coupon for a fun day of their choice. The coupon gives their families all the details they need to know about the reward. How easy is that?  The "fine print" even states if the reward turns into a distraction or good choices are not made, the reward has to be put away.
