New Blogs and a Behavior Incentive

Ok, I saw this awesome behavior incentive on Pinterest today! I'm excited about it because it is something that I could totally do as a sub!


I am excited about this. If the whole class is doing great, a piece gets added, but if they are off task, a part comes off. As a sub, I could say that if he gets completed, then they have 15 minutes of free time at the end of the day or something like that. Oh I am excited lol :)

Now for some new blogs that I've discovered and love :)

Teachery Tidbits is a cute blog :) Natalie has some cute units and ideas. And when she gets 100 followers, she'll have a giveaway with a Target giftcard!!! We all love Target right? Click her button to get to her blog :)


Another cute blog is Awesome in First! Annie and Melissa trying to get to 50 followers and will be giving away a $20 gift card to TpT (another favorite, right?) They are super close and could use some more followers. They have some super cute freebies too! Click their button to go to their blog :)


Tomorrow is my friend's baby shower and I can't wait! I made her a cute baby card, I made her a cute subway art for the baby's room, and got the baby some clothes. I also got a pair of sunglasses. That is one of my baby shower trademarks I guess you could say. And it's funny because then people expect me to get their baby a pair, so I can't disappoint! Lol :) I'll post pics of the things I made tomorrow :) Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. Fantastic idea! I can especially see it for your when you are subbing! I always break out some new whole group behavior (bribery) incentives around this time of the year when behavior tends to slip a bit. Last year I made a large paper fishbowl and when the group was doing well, we added a fish. When the bowl was full, I bought a real fishbowl and a fish for the class. Very fun! I also did a flowerpot with flowers and they earned something fun (can't remember, but may have been extra time outside!)I LOVE the Mr. Potatohead idea...time to head to Pinterest to find it.
    Thanks!

  11. Holly - We had about 8 of them at one point in time but my boys grew out of them and gave them away. Looks like I will be heading out to pick one up tomorrow and adding it to my teachers bag!
