Kids Rewards: A Behavior Chart for All
Summary : An Easy-to-Use Online Behavior Chart
Kids Rewards is an online chart that teachers can customize for specific goals, rewards, and students. To begin, teachers will need to register with the website and then log in. Next, teachers can click the “Add Kid” button on the top right of the screen and then individually enter each of their students into the chart. At this point, teachers can add class and individual goals for students.
To add class goals, teachers will need to click the “Add Common Goal” button on the top right of the screen and a new screen will appear. On it, teachers can enter the goal’s name, points needed to achieve the goal, start date, prize, and additional prize information. Once entered, teachers can click the “Submit” button, and the goal will appear on the website’s main screen. If teachers wish to add individual goals for students, they can click the “Add Goal” button by a student’s name and enter in the information. That goal will then appear by the student’s name.
After creating the goals, teachers can award points towards earning them. To do so, teachers will need to click a student’s name and a new screen will appear. Teachers can then use the “+” and “-“ buttons to add and subtract points. Teachers can also insert notes when awarding or deducting points, and a bar graph towards the bottom of the screen shows a record of the total points.
Classroom Applications for Kids Rewards
- At the beginning of the year, teachers and students can develop class goals together and the criteria for earning points towards them. As the school year progresses, teachers can award and deduct points accordingly. Once the points are met towards a goal, teachers will need to reward students.
- Teachers can combine this website with a noise monitoring tool, such as Bouncy Balls or Decibel 10th, and reward or deduct points accordingly.
- To document student behavior, teachers can make sure they add notes when they award or deduct points. That way, they will have notes about student behavior they can bring to conferences, meetings, and open houses.
