    Survivor Islands....behavior management

    This year, beginning in the spring, I began an Island behavior management program. I teach 5th grade and in the spring they really get hormonal. This is also the time of year when we begin to go on several fieldtrips. What I did was to come up with different islands and each student put their name on a shape ( so that they could physically move their name and have a constant reminder of where they stand). I forget the name of the islands...but they were something like...paradise, warning, boot camp, outlaw. Each Monday, everyone got a chance to start over and move their name back to paradise island. They enjoyed this and it helped them to monitor their own behavior. They knew if they got to out law island, they were missing out on something. In my case it was a fieldtrip. But it could be used with free time on Friday...games, treats, recess, etc. I hope this helps.
