Behavior at the Beach. . .

Where in the world did the summer go?!?!  Can't believe I'm officially reporting back to school tomorrow!  I was just telling Mr. Perry today that even though I should know what I'm doing by now I get nervous around this time of year!  There are so many What If's. . .that run through my mind. . .

Anyway-on to what this post is really about classroom management, behavior systems, and rewards. . . 

I SO loved Sarah's post about "beehavior" catalog's that I decided to whip up a few of my own.  I am so excited about donating all of those little prizes, stickers, and toys to the children's ministry at my church!  

Here are some of the rewards. . .

So everyday that a student is on "green," they earn a ticket.  They can also earn additional tickets throughout the day by being a good citizen.   One of my classroom jobs is the "ticket master."  This person checks the "Behavior at the beach-tree" and passes out tickets.   You'll notice that some of the prizes include trading tickets in for "Bronco Bucks."  That's because we have a school wide "Bronco Store" with all kinds of gadgets prizes in it (that are paid for by the school).  I love the idea of giving them tickets and letting them decide which kind of reward they want.


I also added an order form with a few questions for the students to answer about their reward and suggestions for future prizes/rewards. 



  1. I love it! Last year I had a ticket store. The rewards were presented as a list. But, I love your full size pages. Thanks for always sharing your fun ideas!
