That's what I heard when I introduced "The Fabulous Cone" to my 4th and 5th grade class. What an easy classroom management system! Here's how I implement it:
Step 1: Acquire a cone. Mine came from Dollar Tree.
Step 2: Put the cone in front of a student you catch doing something "fabulous." I'll say something like, "Johnny, I love the way you got right to work- Faaabulouss!" and then I slide the cone over to him and watch while everyone else gets.right.to.work.
Step 3: The student who has the cone at the end of the period gets to clip up. In my room, they clip up TWO TIMES! Hold the phone!
Step 4: When students reach the top of the chart, they can choose a reward. (I make them choose without looking...such fun!) Adding the QR codes to the reward coupons brings a great sense of mystery.
And there you have it! Easy peezy lemon squeezy.
Let me know what you do to motivate your students and you could win my Editable Reward Coupons! I'll choose a winner by 9/18.
