Working towards that movie night – Reward System

When I first started with my students, they’d had a bunch of substitutes already and didn’t have a routine in many things. I saw in Pinterest that another teacher had used puzzle pieces as a reward system. Now, kids learn routines fast and since I couldn’t afford an actual puzzle (and I didn’t even find one big enough with just less than 30 pieces) I bought a 3-euro-poster instead and cut it to pieces. Everytime the class did something well, they earned a piece. I handed 2-4 pieces a day and in the end waited the grand prize: a movie night with popcorn. I know the puzzle might not be the prettiest to look at, but it did the trick. And after it was finished it can be used as an actual puzzle.
