Classroom Management

  • -Students begin each week with 10 new coins.

    -Students earn coins throughout the week for: nice neat work, working quietly, following directions, helping others ect.

    -Students can also loose coins throughout the week for: hands on others, voice level, getting out of area, being off task ect.

    -On Fridays (or the last day of the week) students can spend their coins to buy things from the treasure box (or save their coins to go towards a bigger prize the next week). There are 3 different treasure box sizes: 10 coins, 20 coins, 30 coins. In order to make this successful we need you to help keep the treasure boxes stocked!
