Anytime my class does something well, they get a gumball. I just draw them in with marker. It is usually for transitions, clean up time, walking in line well, etc. Gumballs will also be given for using quiet voices during guided reading groups as well. Any behavior you desire gets a gumball! Sometimes I give big gumballs or multiple gumballs when they deserve it. Sometimes I just give a little gumball to try to keep them motivated, but need to encourage better. You get the idea...
When the class fills the gumball machine with gumballs, then they earn a special reward. It might be extra recess time, a fun healthy snack, stickers. Anything, you decide. Hope this is helpful to you!
