Pin in the Board

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Katie Williams

As a whole class reward system for my class, we put a 'pin in the board'.

I made over an old cork notice board with a snazzy star design and marked the positions for 50 drawing pins. At the beginning of each rotation, the children choose their reward e.g. DVD afternoon, extra play, picnic lunch out, etc. This is put into the middle of the star on the board.

Every time the whole class does something special they get a pin in the board. I have found that this works really well and my class love to think of exciting new rewards.

The board sits on the side in my room, doesn't get in the way and the children can all see it to remind them to be good!
