Free Rewards for Students and YOU!

This is my 1st Freebie Friday!!! I am so excited!

As teachers, we spend a lot of our own money. As I read blogs, I see all the great bargains everyone has been finding at Target, Wal-Mart, Office Depot, teacher stores, etc....

I have been shopping this summer as well. I have spent too much money, I know.

While planning positive reinforcements for my classroom management plan, I started thinking about how I could reward them with 1) FREE things, and 2) something that they would like. Plus, I have approximately 100 students, so free is important.

I made reward coupons. These are things I know they wanted to do last year, but weren't allowed to. Middle school kids are sometimes hard to please.

 I have 9 ideas so far.

I found these index card boxes at Target for 50 cents one week. I wish I had bought more because when I went back, they were $1. But, they also came with these dividers and stickers, that I know I will use at some point.
I made labels to match the coupon and this is where I will store each coupon.

I am really excited to share this with my Math department when school starts and to start using this with my students.

I also want to share this with you.  I  took my name off so you can use it yourself.
