Good whole and small group rewards!

I'm staying away from food as rewards and am looking for a few creative ideas. I need some whole class ideas (i.e. we did silly sock day today and we've had a pajama party etc) ..... and I also need some small group ideas (today's "group" won extra time playing games on the computer .... however they didn't seem to excited)


THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Small groups love lunch with the teacher!

For whole group:

Teach them a new game (inside or outside)
Choose where you sit
Bring in a stuffed animal
Bring in your favorite book
Lego party (my class last year came up with this)
Have the principal read them a story (ask first!)
Create an art project

one of the things my kids love is "smellies". i bought a pack of roll on lip glosses (all kinds of fruit flavors) and for a reward i roll a little on the back of their hand. they love it and the small lasts a long time. and the lip glosses will last forever too. it was cheap and easy.

we also made little sticker books that the kids keep in their seat sacks and whenever they earn a sticker they can put it in their sticker book. t's a good place to keep them and they like seeing their collection grow. i used to put them on their hand or shirt and they would always lose them.

Last year, one way that my class chose to celebrate was a Show and Tell day. They loved it!

I put little drops of lotion on their hands to reward those for making good choices during the day and I have also drawn little stars or happy faces on the back of their hands with washable marker. I have 2 students that are needing special reinforcements, so, I too, was looking for ways to reward my other students for following directions.

Beanie Babies

I have brought beanie babies into my classroom and designated those beanies as rewards for making good choices, either as individual or small groups. I have several of each and my kids love them. They are able to have them at their table, hold them, love them, and feel the reward for making good choices. Here are just a few examples: tiptoe mouse = quiet in the hall, whisper deer = whisper or no talk, bee = bee ready, and of course this doesn't work without the opposite: snail = slow to do, octopus = hands on others, etc. My class is excited about our beanie friends. They are also learning kindness to animals as we discuss how to take care of our friends.
