"Family Store"... kids earn points at home for doing chores/good behavior and then turn in their points for items in the "family store" once a week. Ideas for items in the "store" could be things already around the house like, special snacks, stickers, drinks, notebooks, post-its, dollar store stuff. Use different color stickers to represent the "point value" of each item (point value key posted on side of box).
Great reward system for children
Felt chair footies- Cheaper than tennis balls...it's the simple things in a classroom that make a big difference!
Great site for classroom decorating ideas. This site can be used for different grade levels, but mostly in elementary school. They give you different grade levels and themes for your classroom. This especially relates to the Teaching Standard, Element IV.4 for organizing and utilizing available resources to create a safe and productive learning environment.

On a due date, if a student does not have his/her assignment, he/she must fill out one of these yellow sheets and turn it in in place of said assignment. It asks for basic information like the assignment title, due date, and student signature. I think this would be great to send home in the students' Friday folders to keep parents aware
On a due date, if a student does not have his/her assignment, he/she must fill out one of these yellow sheets and turn it in in place of said assignment. It asks for basic information like the assignment title, due date, and student signature. Keep this in the stack of papers and, as students turn in their late work, use it to record the actual date the assignment is turned in and the number of points deducted. (More good organization tips at this link.)
"As soon as the kids walk in, this is what they see - it's our main "drop zone". They stop and turn their homework in, submit any notes from home, choose their lunch for the day, and turn in their library books. It's a one-stop-shop. It is so helpful that it's right inside the door, because the kids don't have the chance to miss it!"
Everything for the morning all by the door. This teacher calls it the "drop zone."
