Giving class rewards can be a tricky business. There are lots of time when it is necessary to offer a whole class reward. It encourages the children to work together, it creates a group feeling amongst the class and is a lot of fun!
The way you choose to award your class treat is up to you. Some people like to collect marbles and others do dojo points, I will write another post about ways to collect rewards but for now we will be thinking about ways to treat the class as a whole (without spending any money!)

Another way to treat the class as a whole is a pass, this can be something along the lines of a homework pass - no home work this week for anyone! You could offer them a pass on a test or a particular chore they all hate.
And of course the old favourite, extra play time!
Never miss a post!
