Perfect 10 for hallway

Here is what I do with my third graders. They love this and their hallway behavior is excellent! A perfect 10 means 1 straight line and 0 voices, hence the number 10. If they walk in the hallways in a straight line with no talking, I cross off the number 1 on a laminated 100 chart. When they have earned 10 perfect 10s, they receive an extra 10 minute recess. After they have received their extra recess we start again. I use the next row, and when they earn 10 more perfect 10's, they get another 10 minutes of recess. I do this for the first 5 or 6 weeks of school and then gradually wean them off of it. Every once in awhile they don't make it, but this has been a big motivator for my class for years. I hope it works for you!
