Re: Point System for GOOD behavior & work

Every class that comes in I start them off with 5 points. If they get too
loud, I wipe a point
off. When they leave class I record how many points they have left next to
their name. After
25 points they get a free day. I had laminated cards I would keep track of
the points. We also
have a behavior book that each classroom teacher brings with them. If a
student acts up their
name goes in the book and the classroom teacher deals with it.
I hope that helps some.

Hi, Artsednetters-
Any of you out there have a really reliable point system for entire classes
who perform well in class--as far as behavior & the competion of in-class
assignments? I have tried so many different behavior -based programs in
the past and none have been successful for me as yet. Let's face it, an art
teacher NEEDS something effective (a chart, notebook, etc.) so the behavior
doesn't get out-of hand because the kids think art is a free-for-all. It's
a frustration for me because I would like for my students to work toward
specific goals. Incidentally, I do not have the $$$ for stickers, toys,
candy, etc., for my 1500 kids, (I don't make as much money as Bill Gates or
Dick Cheney!!) soooo...what has been successful for you in rewarding your
kids? Thanks for sharing your ideas!
