Why reserve fun, magical characters just for Christmastime? Straight from the wonderful land of fairy dust and talking toys, these friends of the Elf-on-the-Shelf are part of my most favorite behavior management reward system I use in my classroom. Depending on the season, these creatures appear in our classroom to watch my students and award them based on good behavior!
I got this adorable chick from my local Hobby Lobby. When he shows up on a student's desk with an award, he also brings this certificate.
Only I can touch the chick, so when the students excitedly point-out his new location, I pick him up and he whispers to tell me why the specific student was chosen. ;-) Another perfect way to highlight specific behaviors that you want to see more of in all of your kiddos.
