1. Take an ordinary can (i.e., coffee, peanut, etc..) and decorate it to your taste. I use bright colors and huge writing for the younger children. -- 2. Fill the can with popsicle sticks. Be creative! -- 3. Have the children color or paint the sticks. Once the sticks are finished, label the sticks with the wonderful jobs the children like to help the teacher do (i.e., running errands, line leader, pick a movie, win small prizes-pencils, candy, erasers, pick a book of the day, etc..) -- 4. When an individual or team members are working quietly, complete seat work, finished all homework, shows kindness and respect to others, plays safely, etc.., a stick is drawn from the can and that child or children are rewarded with the job or prize indicated on the stick. -- 5. It is also a good idea to make a chart to keep track of the children and to post inside the classroom. This activity works great because everyone wants to lend a helping hand!
