When students participate when no one else is or answers 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!
Chit~Chat Chart...pull a square of the chart when a child is talking while the teacher is talking. If all 3 are pulled before recess...they have to run/walk laps. Don't take recess away as a punishment.
Love this idea! Pull a name from the Mystery Hero jar. Don't say their name, but let kids know you are watching your Mystery Hero. If the Mystery Hero does a good job reward them, and if they aren't on their best behavior just say to the class that the Mystery Hero needs to try harder. Don't call the student out or let students know who it was.

This way I heard the story AND kept the lesson going - Click image to find more DIY & Crafts Pinterest pins
