Classroom Management Plan
Prize Box
One of the classroom management plans I implemented in my classroom is the use of a prize box.  When students are working especially well, or when I need them to behave for a guest teacher, I offer them the chance to earn a choice from the prize box.  I write their names on the chalkboard, so the entire class can see those students who are behaving the way they should.  I usually try to pick five or six students a day and I keep track of who I have chosen so that everyone gets a chance to be rewarded for their behavior.  The prize box is a plastic container about the size of a shoe box.  In it, I keep small treats and trinkets.  They are very inexpensive and never cost more that a quarter each.  This keeps my daily cost down, but it is still exciting for the students.
