At the beginning of the year, I decided that our class needed something for positive behavior. I looked at MILLIONS of ideas on Pinterest (the place where all of my ideas come from), but I wanted it to go along with our ocean theme. So this is what I came up with--a fishbowl!
For everytime our whole class is working hard, complimented, receives a good report from specials, etc., they get a scoop of fish in the fishbowl. Once our bowl is full, we get a prize! It might be that everyone gets something from the treasure chest, or we get to have a special snack in the afternoon. Either way, everytime I go to fill up the fishbowl, the students get so excited! And they are even better for the rest of the day to see if they can get two scoops!
