Tickets hidden in library books- My version of the golden tickets has different colors to use in different genres. These will be hidden in library books that have not been checked out in a while. The green ones will encourage the students to try a new book too.
Awesome strategy where students use cards to indicate how they are progressing through the independent practice. This allows the teacher to intervene when necessary and gauge student's understanding of concepts.
I give each student 2 tickets at the start of the class and when acting inappropriately I quietly walk by and take one... NO WORDS EXCHANGED & quietly address them later - those with both tickets left at the end of the day trade it in for a Incentive ticket used for prizes - NICE VISUAL REMINDER TO KIDDOS - read the blog for more ideas
