A thought on how to organize the school year!
Rewarding kids with things they get to do instead of things they get to have. When they do something good, they pick from the jar and get things like to play outside a little longer etc.
everything flips. No more buckets of extra calendar numbers#Repin By:Pinterest++ for iPad#
Behavior 'catalog' of prizes instead of cheap trinkets - all free idea.
Quiet Critters - when you decide it's important for students to be quiet, pass out the quiet critters. Take them away from students who talk. At the end of the activity anyone who still has a quiet critter gets a prize, point, whatever you use. Brilliant!

5-4-3-2-1. In this simple game, students stand up and the teacher (or leader) has them do five different movements in descending order. For example the teacher would say: "Do fivejumping jacks, spin around four times, hop on one foot threetimes, walk all the way around the classroom two times, give your neighbor one high-five (pausing in between each task for students to do it).
