Stickers, Stickers! Fun Giveaway

 

I get asked often about these sticker charts that you can see in my classroom pictures. People ask me what I use them for..so, let me tell you!

I use these as rewards- not necessarily for behavior {but sometimes, yes!} but for contests, games, and good work!

012

        The reward for “filling up your sticker chart” is to skip homework. I admit that at times I really don’t like this reward- but, kids love it, it’s easy, it’s free.. and even parents like it! So, I continue to keep it as the incentive to “fill up your chart”.

001     002

My first graders can earn a sticker if they are a winner of a classroom game. We play a lot of games that are based on luck- so the winner is not always the smartest kiddo! I usually give out 2-3 stickers a week for game winners.

Around the holidays, I will have a coloring contest with a holiday coloring sheet.  I give out a coloring sheet and they can work on it when they have a few extra minutes. Then usually on Friday afternoons- we will vote on the best one. The winner usually wins a small little holiday trinket {pencil, candy, etc..} and a sticker for his/her chart.

Sometimes, if my little ones are restless and I know I need them to pay attention more- I will tell them I will pick someone at the end of our lesson that paid really good attention and wanted to learn a sticker. This might not last long.. but this will all get them back on task and listening for a few minutes.

We also do fun little trivia contests randomly throughout the year. For example: I will tell them if they can come back to school tomorrow and tell me who is on a dime they will get a sticker.

But, the #1 way to earn a sticker in my classroom is to get the “fun test” correct each morning. My students love “fun tests” and are quick to remind me if we get off schedule and have to skip it. It is a great transitional activity that is short and sweet…

The first job my helper does each morning when we get ready to leave the mat after our morning meeting is to grab this purple basket and give everyone a piece of paper.

006

This is nothing but scrap paper I keep cut for the “fun test”.

While my helper is passing out paper- I write a question on the white board for my students to answer. Most of the time it is math related.

008 009

Students have to do the fun test by themselves..

I will not answer any questions or help at all.     

010    011

When they are done they bring their paper to me and put it in a stack. Then once everyone is finished we do the problem together on the board.

013     005

I quickly look through the papers and call out the names of who got it correct. Students get a sticker for their charts if they got the “fun test” question right.

This is a such a great transitional activity that moves us from our meeting time on the mat- to our whole group math lesson.

 

As a special treat…

Carson Dellosa has graciously given me 2 mega packs of stickers to giveaway to my readers!

I will randomly pick 2 winners on Saturday!
