PBIS reward

How do we reward proper behavior?


Rewarding proper behavior begins in the classroom with the relationship the students have with their teachers.  Teachers continually acknowledge and reward positive behavior with the interactions they daily have with their students.  Things like verbal praise, encouragement, eye contact with a smile, a thumbs-up, a pat on the back, or a phone call or email home to parents to let them know how well their son or daughter is doing are utilized every day.   

Teachers also use more tangible rewards like classroom parties, treats, extra recesses, special classroom events, free time, picking from the “treasure box,” or lunch with the teacher.  

Two or three times each year, Rooney Ranch will conduct a school-wide PBIS event.  During these events all classrooms will be working toward specific behavior goals over about a three week period.  These events not only help us focus on behavior needs, but they tend to foster a sense of community as all students work toward the same goal.  Rewards for these events have included movies in the gym, movies in the classrooms, parties in the classrooms, special lunches, and other treats.
