Positive reinforcement

By Véronique Bevali

bucket

This year all our pre-elementary classes switched to positive reinforcement. We adopted a token economy in which pebbles are given individually but at the end of the day, the students empty their little buckets into the group bucket to contribute to a group reward that the students choose together.

This system allows us to focus on good choices and create group cohesion. Collective rewards varied since the beginning of the year: In K we had painting on the windows, eating in the classroom, having hot chocolate etc.This week our KA filled up their collective bucket and decided together that they wanted their teachers to organize an Alpha hunt.Alpha
