"bee"havior catalog...includes incentives for students such as swap a desk with a friend, wear a hat to school, have lunch with a friend, etc. I love that there are no material objects or prizes. Definitely need to use this in my classroom this year!
two minute countdown: *make sure your planner is filled out *put away homework and other papers in your binder *organize your materials - don't leave anything behind *thank someone for their help or kindness *stay seated until mrs. teacher dismisses you - remember, every minute counts!
