Alternatives to Using Food as a Rewards

Guidelines from the State Department of Education and our own Nutrition Plan discourage the use of food as a reward for students. If you are looking for alternative ways to reward students, this link provides some suggestions.

I loved this "help" sheet on extrinsic rewards! I have found over the years that students of all ages will reach goals to receive even the smallest of rewards. One thing that I used to do in my fourth grade classroom, which some people found to be drastic, is that if everyone in the class made an A on a test, then I would get on top of my desk and sing and dance for one minute.I always made a total fool of myself! This only happened around 3 times per year (thank goodness), but my former students STILL approach me and ask if I have danced lately. It was a fond memory for them. Believe it or not, I won an award three years ago, because a former student sent in a nomination on my behalf telling of my dancing to get students to work. Who would have ever thought I would get $1,000 for my pitiful dancing??!!!Give food...no way!
