Behavior Motivator

This is a simple motivator that I have used during the month of December.  I made a Christmas tree out of construction paper and cut out colored dots (ornaments) from construction paper and a star for the top.  I laminated everything so I can use it again next year.  Every time the class is doing what they are suppose to be doing, they earn an ornament.  They can also lose an ornament.  When they earn 10 ornaments and the star, they earn a reward.  So far we have watched a Christmas movie and had a popcorn party.  It’s been a great visual for keeping behavior in check during the Christmas season.
