Rewards as Part of Classroom Management

This is part of classroom management as it relates to extrinsic rewards given to students for positive behaviour. It is a way of acknowledging the student in a positive and creative manner. Rewards must be meaningful to the student. Sara might not be inspired to work toward more time with the class pet, but she would love to visit her teacher from last year. So talk with your students and find out what gets them going. Some creative ideas for classroom rewards can be found at Free Printable Behaviour Charts.
