Student of the Month Awards - Behavior Incentive

Looking for a cute way to jazz up your classroom management this year??


You might want to try giving out 'student of the month' awards! 

I created these awards as a way to motivate my students to use appropriate classroom behavior. Each month focuses on a specific character trait/social skill. You can use the poster to help teach the trait and refer to it all month. At the end of the month, you can choose 1-4 students (or however many you want) to receive the special award. Your students will be motivated and excited to use appropriate behavior all year long!

This download includes 12 posters to teach each trait/skill and 12 colorful awards to use each month. Also, I have provided each award in a quarter page format, so that you can use them like trading cards. Students can try to collect them all!

These awards help teach the following character traits/behavior skills:
*How to be an A+ student
*Being polite (manners)
*Being thankful
*Having a positive attitude
*Working quietly and not shouting out
*How to be a "sweetheart"
*Listening skills
*Being an example/role model
*Being friendly
*How to brighten others around you
*Being helpful

I love the formats for your awards! My first year, I did student of the month, but I've since switched to student of the week. I notoriously forget to do them on Friday afternoons/ monday mornings, and the kids have to remind me. I put the certificated on a Bulletin Board and leave them there...then on Friday, the kids can take them home. They seem to love that method. I've just found that it's easier to keep them motivated with excellent behavior for a week than a month (and most of my middle schoolers can't seem to remember what happened a month ago). Does the month long incentive work for you? How do you help them stay motivated?
