Glowing Behavior! - Camping Themed Behavior Management Display With FREE Templates!
We couldn't resist this sweet little camping themed behavior management display. How fun are the fireflies?! While some groups of students never need the added incentive, for those classrooms that might need a little extra behavior boost, this positive behavior management idea is not only cute, it's also a fun way to get students to work together to make positive choices and earn fun rewards!
Here's how it works...
Students are divided into 'cabins' and a mason jar cutout assigned to each group. Then, working together and holding each other accountable, students work to earn fireflies for exceptional behavior - i.e. compliments from other teachers, a whole week where everyone in the group stays at green or higher on the clip chart, etc. Once students have earned a specified number of fireflies, the group gets a reward - i.e. write with a pen, sit with a friend, 5 minutes free iPad time, etc.
- Background: Paint a large piece of poster board with black, purple, and blue craft paint to create the 'night sky'.
- Title: "GLOWing Behavior!"
- Border: Complimentary patterned border.
- Decoration: 1) The Mason Jars. We created several templates you can . Print the mason jar cutouts onto white card stock. Color the top with a silver Sharpie then use scissors to cut out the middle of the jar, leaving a thin edge. Laminate the cutouts and attach to the poster board. 2) The Fireflies. Use yellow craft paint and a silver Sharpie to make thumbprint fireflies directly on the laminated mason jars! So that you don't have to pull out the paint at inopportune times to create a single firefly, keep a running total of fireflies and add them (with much pomp and ceremony) to the jars at the end of the each week. [NOTE: For extra fun, use glow in the dark paint!]
