    use a small bulletin board to create a baseball field, football field, etc. your students can earn yardage (steps toward bases?) for every time the whole group is on-task--when they get a homerun or touchdown, they've earned a special privilege. (ask your students--they know what they'll work for!) you could do this on an individual basis, as well, each kid must get to a certain point by X date to earn the reward.

    i also did a Guess Jar for a few years. fill a jar/bottle with goodies (pencils, whatever) and each time (occasionally) you see kids on task, they get a guess ticket--they write their name and guess at number in jar--every so often, you check who is closest without going over--s/he wins the jar!
