I have started to move away from material prizes in my classroom this year. I still have a well stocked prize box but I have also introduced a number of rewards based on time and fun experiences instead, and so far the children are choosing the non material prizes every week!
Here’s some of the rewards I have been using for my table of the week:
Hot chocolate and a treat
Extra yard time
Bring a toy to school
Sit at the VIP Table
Using the Special Supplies Box
Sit beside a friend
Teach a lesson on your favourite topic to the class.
I have these reward coupons which I printed out and show to the children to let them pick which they want as a reward for being the table of the week. You can download them for free here:
