Rewards

Auction prizes

Think ahead about items your students might like to purchase at the classroom auctions. Gather both tangible and intangible rewards.

Examples:

Tangible

  • Small toys
  • Sports balls
  • Pencils
  • Erasers
  • Fruit
  • Trophies
  • CDs/DVDs
  • Electronic video games
  • iTunes gift certificate
  • Coupons or gift certificates to local business
  • Movie tickets
  • Autographs

Intangible

  • Free homework coupon
  • Lunch with teacher and two friends
  • Lunch with the principal or another teacher
  • Extra recess or computer time
  • Book-reading time
  • Swap desks with the teacher for a day/week
  • Sit with a friend for a week/month

Tips:

  • Get the community involved by asking local businesses or vendors to donate products.
  • Request autographs from local celebrities, such as the principal, a coach, the mayor, or business leaders. You can have your students write letters to ask for them.
  • Actively involve parents in finding or contributing auction items.
  • Involve your colleagues (e.g. offer a lunch with the principal or another teacher).

End-of-year rewards

In the year-end wrap-up, you could allow your students to pool their money and purchase a class reward, such as:

  • A class party.
  • A movie day.
  • A crazy hat day.
