Group Incentives!

hey all!! happy wednesday...okay its my first week back and i feel like its taking forever to get to the weekend and i never feel like time goes by takes some getting used too!! weve been going over routines daily...rules...direction..and boy am i exhausted!!

but i managed to take some pics to show you all how im doing my group incentives this year.... i like doing individual incentives bc that way kids don't have to worry about having kiddies in their group...but i also think its great to do group rewards as well bc  they all get happy for each other for a job well this is what i started with
so i have different colored sharpies....paint cans and polka dot name tags... polka dots are my theme this year and i just fell in love when i saw this pack!!
next i labeled the cans
i loved the way they came out...they are so colorful and bright..i placed these in the middle of the room so the kiddies are aware!  the way it works is simple... i told the kiddies everytime  i notice a group doing something nice...or behaving while others aren't...i will drop a "fuzzy" in their can...take notice of the left one..i filled them all the way up so you can see... once a group fills their can all the way up they will get a could either be puzzles, free time, reading a book, etc...but beware!  if a group misbehaves, you can take a "fuzzy" away as well....this way they make sure they stay on the right track with their work and behavior! they loved the idea and were excited to behave ..right away!! so i couldn't complain... =)  i have already filled quite a few up im is a closer look of the can..i got the cans at Really Good Stuff
i hope you can use this idea in the seems to be working fabulous for me so ill keep you love to hear from you guys how it works in your class =)...i have to make this a quick post tonight..i have to tutor tonight! =) stay tunes for great craftivities to working on so many right now..i know youll love them!
