Classroom Rewards - Candy or Not?
I usually give candy (Dum Dums) for small rewards in my classroom. With so much emphasis on healthy eating lately, what other small rewards could I give my students for following classroom routines?

I give out reward certificates such as sit where you want, homework oops pass, listen to music during class, or 5 minutes of free time, just to name a few. These don't cost anything for me and students love these types of rewards.

This is a great solution because you can give out a sticker and it give the child the same feeling a piece of candy would, because it is the sense of a reward.

I think that this would be something great to get the students involved in. Make a list of a few things that you would be willing to get the students that are a little bit of a healthier option and affordable for yourself. Write them down and allow for the students to vote on what they would like. It would be your choice but I would maybe pick the top two choices and stock those up so when a student is deserving they could choose one or the other.

Classroom rewards can be brain breaks, listening to their choice of a kidz bop song, or a few minutes of free time to draw/structured play. Individual rewards can be hand-written notes, excellent phone call homes, and "students of the day" posters. Personally, I try to avoid rewarding students with materialistic items.

There are so many things you can do with your students. You could create a rewards system where students receive some sort of ticket of some sort that they can collect throughout the week. Students who have over a certain amount of tickets can go to the "treasure box" on Friday. The treasure box can be full of healthy snacks, neat school supplies, and small toys that the students can choose from.

Another thing that you could do is give students healthier options like gold fish, raisins, or pretzels. If you do that, I suggest that you find out if any students in the class have allergies. You can give the students a small handful of food for the reward.

There are many other rewards other than candy. You can give homework passes, a gold star (5 for a treasure box), a note home, etc. You could even do class behavior where if the class is behaving the way they should then they get a party with healthy snacks! Or if you like the food reward and it works for you then maybe try fruit snacks, or pretzels.

I would save the rewards, whatever they may be, for the end of the week so that the students have something to work up to. Giving students tickets throughout the week and doing a drawing at the end of the week is a fun way to give rewards. Students who win the drawing may pick from a variety of things such a treasure box or allowing to read with a pillow during independent reading time.

I have seen how extrinsic motivation works well for some students while intrinsic works the best long term. If you are looking for short term then the best thing may be to use rewards that do not cost you any money. You can give out homework passes, extra time for breaks, sit in a comfy chair, sit near a friend, etc. If you think your kids can do well with intrinsic motivation then give a lot of praise when it is earned. I think that calling home, sending emails, and notes home to parents with good news is also very rewarding to students. So many times teachers focus on the negative instead of the positive. Is candy a good choice? Most kids scream "Yes!" while most parents will say "No!"

Instead of continuously giving candy as a reward, I use tally marks to reward good behavior. Then, at the end of the grading period, those who have accumulated the set number of marks I designate as exceptional, recieve a reward such as pizza or cupcakes. So, even though these aren't healthy rewards, they are only given once every grading period rather than everyday.

I do not like how this approach showcases the students that are good and the ones who are not being good. It reminds me of public humiliation when there are some students who try really hard to be a good student and fall short. If this was not advertised on a board then I like the concept.

I believe that small rewards are developing an extrinsic motivation to learn. I teach students that they are learning to develop their use of communication to enter into various categories and levels of thinking that are typically connected with various levels of class and income. Hence, I do not have to worry about them not working if no grade or reward is attached. I change their mindsets. Although they will receive extrinsic rewards in the real world.

I have seen one really cool reward system in place at a school I work at. The students have a tally system that they work on as an entire class. At the beginning of each day, the teacher draws a T chart on the board. One side has a smiley face, the other side has a sad face. The class earns tally marks for positive behavior. For any negative behavior, one tally mark is erased and moved to the sad face side. At the end of the day, the teacher counts the amount of happy tally marks and puts that many marbles inside of a jar. The jar holds a total of 50 marbles and the students objective is to fill the jar by the end of the week.

The teacher who implements this is the STEM teacher at our school, so she actually has robots that are controlled by iPads. If the students fill the jar by the end of the week, the last hour of the day on Fridays is spent outside playing with these robots. Not all students in the school participate in the after-school STEM program, so this is rewarding for all of them. Also, it teaches them to hold one another accountable.

Ask the students what rewards they would like. A lot of times pens or pencils or even cool bookmarks and erasers can be substituted.

I know when I was in elementary school, my teacher had a treasure box. Instead of giving out candy for rewards, there would be like little toys and stickers instead. So it does not necessarily have to be food related for rewards.

I switched to fun pencils and erasers from the dollar store. Its cost officiant and the students never seem to have a pencil so it solves that problem as well.

Stickers!!! Also could have a treasure box that has an assortment of pencils, erasers, pencil grips, things for school, not candy. In order for students to get anything from the treasure box, give out "classroom bucks" and after a certain amount, students can cash them in and get something in the treasure box.
