    Token economy

    I have created "Behavior Bucks" that my students earn for completing all homework, not getting in trouble, etc. At the end of each month I open up my classroom store and the students can purchase rewards using their bucks. It has worked great for me. The students compete to see who earns the most bucks over the course of the year. Sometimes I let them earn class rewards. If everyone reaches a certain number of bucks they can, as a class, purchase a movie and popcorn party. I've used this system for 2 years now and have noticed a dramatic change in behavior. They are eager to earn their bucks. You do have to make sure you have things in the store that will interest them. Also, just to warn you, all of the things in my store have been purchase with my own money. It's worth it!!
