*Power Pellets -Anytime I call out "Power Position" the students have to stop what they are doing, fold their arms, and look at me. The first one to do so quietly will get a Power Pellet (aka, one skittle). Seriously teachers, THIS WORKS! I don't even really yell the words, I just simply and casually say them and they stop. It's magic what one Skittle will do for a kiddo! :}
When students participate when no one else is or answer a challenging question they can get 'smart beads' to wear. They trade in smart beads at the end of the day for a little note that goes home to their parents! Note included on website as printable
Need to make this!! When they return their completed reading log, they get to pick a sucker! Now, some of these suckers have black dots on the ends of the stick. If they are lucky enough to pull out one of those, they get to pick from the treasure box. I thought a sucker once a month would be okay – that’s probably how long it will take most families to fill a reading sheet. Some will fill them up faster, some will fill them up slower.
