Behavior Coupons

This is definitely NOT my idea! I was inspired by some behavior catalogs I stumbled upon on Pinterest. This got my wheels turning because I have been looking for a way to get rid of my treasure box. While creating these I had it in my mind that I wanted something for my students to hold onto & for me not to create more work for myself to keep track of what they picked. So I made coupons & printed them on cardstock & laminated them. So every Friday the kids will be able to trade in their warm fuzzies for a coupon or two of their choice. They can ONLY pick one of the same coupon. They will be responsible for holding onto their coupons and handing it to me BY THE BELL....otherwise they "expire".  So if I have a student pick "Wear your favorite hat to school" this will ONLY happen in my classroom IF they give me their coupon right away. I used to let them only cash in coupons on Fridays BUT I changed that & I will let "cash in" their coupon all week BUT there are certain coupons only good on Fridays. I did some additional ones that would only apply to my classroom such as job swap, peace seat, cd book picker, & calendar teacher.
I use warm fuzzies in my classroom.....see post HERE.
We traded in our warm fuzzies for the first time today. I have all the coupon choices above plus treat jar, no homework pass, pencil, pencil grip or an eraser. Since I finally got rid of my treasure box which used to be the most popular choice but too expensive for me. I couldn't believe that the kids actually passed up a piece of candy to get a coupon. This is by far the BEST thing I have done in 9 years for classroom management. The kids & parents absolutely LOVE this! 





































Did you miss these super cute student recognition necklaces? It took forever to design each one but they turned out super cute & the kids are obsessed with these! Print them out on labels or card stock, glue or stick to glitter or colored paper & laminate. I hole punched the top & put stretchy tie dye necklaces through the top.

  22. I love your ideas and was wondering how many warm fuzzies each coupon cost. When students cash them in on Fridays, do they keep some for next week if they want to save for something? Thank you so much for sharing and I hope to start these soon in my class because the things I have used in the past are not working.

  31. These are great! Thanks for sharing. I have been using coupons similar to these for the last 15 years. I have a couple you don't use (maybe you'll like to add them someday). "Warm Fuzzies" (wear your slippers) "Switch-a-roo" (seat swap for the day), "Techie Ticket" (free activity choice on the computer during SSR/DEAR time), "Munchies" (personal-sized healthy snack at the desk) "Roll On" (use any roller chair --or teacher chair--in the class for the day)"Spelling Saver" (homework pass from one spelling assignment),...and a bunch more but I can't think of them off the top of my head. I'm going to incorporate some of yours into my rewards soon. Thanks again!

  51. Thank you for the coupons. Instead of using warm fuzzies, I pass out geometric shapes and then they can be redeemed for certian items (pencils, stickers, silly bands, etc.) I was looking for ways to make it more meaningful. I also wanted some more classroom fun ways to display the students' hard work and good behavior. Your idea married the two. Thanks again!

  89. I love this idea! How many fuzzies equals a coupon? If the students don't want to use the coupon can they hold onto them? If a student picks bring in stuffed animal or wear a hat, they have to give you the coupon that day, on Friday? And when do they bring in their special item or wear their hat, the following Friday? Some of your coupons are my jobs: if someone chooses line leader do they get to do that for a day or for a week? Do you normally have a line leader or calendar teacher? Sorry for so many questions.
    Thank you!
