Teacher Resources and Classroom Management - Responsi-bills
I use an idea for encouraging responsibility for my third graders. I made some money and used them as responsi-bills. They are rewarded with bills each week. When they do not follow through with their responsibility they I take away a bill. They get to go to our classroom store each Friday and buy something if they have any money. The store is made up of items I have purchased and what parents send in. If you don't like to idea of taking money away then you can just award them a bill each time they do something good. Keep in mind that this way, it is time consuming. It really does help with their responsibility.
