My students love to "play" pickles and ketchup on Friday afternoons. First print then cut the cards in half to make to two signs. Laminate and attach magnets to each of signs. Then on Fridays, I place them on the board. Anyone who has turned in all of their assignments is a "pickle" and I write their name under the pickle sign. Anyone who is missing an assignment has their name placed under the ketchup bottle. Pickles can "pick" a fun game or activity, while "ketchups" catch up on missing…


Brilliant! Punch a hole in student's paper when they are off task. It is easy to see when looking at papers who was on task and who was off task.


Students don't ask me for pencils anymore. No one leaves the room until all pencils are back on the board. (Photo only, but would be easy to make!)


I saw this wonderful idea in pInterest. It caught my attention as a nice straightforward, stand alone solution to behavior management. I am very interested to know how you would use this in class. It looks a great idea, but I would like some input from someone who has used this successfully or indeed unsuccessfully.

At the beginning of every month, everyone starts off in the homework club. If they turn all their homework in on time, then they get to stay in the club! If they don't then they are out of the club. Students who turn all their homework in for the entire month get to come to the monthly homework club lunch.

When the light's on, students may not talk to you, but have to help each other on new assignment. You can go back and turn it off toward the end of class, to answer any questions they still have.


Fair isn't....



FUN Hallway Behavior Management Idea. Before you leave the classroom pick a chip with a students name but don't tell who it is. They are the mystery walker and you are watching that student the entire time. If they do a good job in the hall, they get a ticket or prize.
