Middle School Incentives

“sit by your friend” pass as a reward
Draw on the White Board
CANDY – dum-dum sucker, or a tootsie roll
Gummy worms
Poptarts
candy from M&M Machine
candy from Gumball Machine

TICKET SYSTEM – hand out tickets to be put in jar for reward ($5 gift card, etc.)

NOTES –
“Shout outs” can be given to students to take home or displayed in the classroom. They are a quick and easy way to praise students, but a written note is so much more meaningful than just telling the student. You may want to announce “shout outs” at the start or end of class, at the start or end of the week, or just slip the student the note (not everyone enjoys being recognized publicly). You can also allow students to write “shout outs” to each other to help build a positive community in your classroom. – http://www.theliterarymaven.com/2016/08/classroom-management-positive-reinforcement.html
