Last year was the first time I used Whole Brain Teaching. I didn't use the Super Improvers Wall, but instead used a ton of other classroom management strategies. I realized I had TOO many rewards, incentives, points, prizes, (you get the picture) going on. I always forgot to do one thing or the other. So my goal this year was to really focus on one positive management plan!
I have been using the SIW tied with my weekly behavior sheet! So far... this was the best week yet:)
Since I was loving Whole Brain Teaching, I wanted to put my focus into the Super Improvers Wall.
Sorry for the bad glare!
Students have to earn 10 tokens (what I call them) to move up the SIW. I found these at a teacher store here on Oahu.
I put them in this ID carrier I always wear around my neck. It has 2 zippers. It is perfect because I can hand out tokens in line, at recess, really anywhere:)
Students keep their tokens in a zipper pouch I provided. I ordered them off of Amazon! Inside the zipper pouch is also a steno book. They glue their tokens on there so they don't lose them.
When students get their 10 tokens they get their star on the SIW
There are 10 colors to match the 10 colors in Tara's freebie! My stars are free too. You can get them HERE.
I also give them two Starburst candies for earning their star;)
I just made this cute label today! If you are all interested, I can make it into a freebie for you:)
I also let them pick a reward coupon! I bought them from Mel D
I cut them all up and place them inside of my talking frog:)
The kids close their eyes and pick one out!
They are LOVING it! I am up to 5 kids on beginner. I have a few close to learner!
I plan on making some certificates to go with moving up the SIW. I will post those when I am done!
How do you use the SIW? I would love to hear some other ways!
Enjoy your weekend friends!
