Now how about a really awesome positive behavior plan that I used while teaching 2nd grade. I stopped using it part way through my last year of teaching 2nd because the school developed another positive plan and 2 were just too hard to juggle. This one incorporates money, which fits 2nd Grade Common Core Standard! On yeah!!!
First you'll need plastic coins and some Crayon Banks like these ones from Party Palooza. If you google it you can find many places that carry them. Click the picture for the ones from Party Palooza. I forget where I got mine.
Besides teaching children to make good choices, this also taught my students to save money for something they really wanted and it helped reinforce counting coins! You could start this even in Kindergarten using pennies and I've heard of teachers using it in 1st grade. My students learned to tell me how much change they should get back! I believe this would work for any grade level! Older students put a student in charge of cashier every week or two instead of you doing it!
I know many classes don't do treasure chest anymore, but you could do this with your other rewards. Assign money amounts for no shoes, eat with teacher, wear slippers, etc.
Is this something you'd like to try? Have you tried it before? Tell us about your behavior plan in the comments.
