How it Works
The Catchem’ Critter Classroom Behavior Management System is a twist on motivating and encouraging positive behaviors with children. In this system, all children are “collectors” and their goal is to catch as many critters as possible and advance as many levels as possible.
Children catch new critters by making positive choices. New critters are given at the teacher’s discretion. This system is an engaging alternative to giving out regular stickers, tickets, tags, etc.
Students will store these critters in booklet called a Critter Keeper. Upon collecting each group of critters, they will “level up” and receive a certificate and/or reward coupon.
Each Critter Sticker provides the name, picture, number, size, type, and description of a different critter. There are 50 critters in this classroom behavior management system!
Every critter embodies a positive character trait. This is a great opportunity to expand your student’s vocabulary, expand on character trait instruction, and explain/encourage ideal traits.
Why I Love this Classroom Behavior Management System
There are many things we need to know as teachers that they do not teach you in college. One of the things I wish they would teach students- one thing I truly wish I had a class on (but did not), is classroom management.
Sure, we learn as we go- but wouldn’t it be great if we went into the classroom with a clear idea of how to do this? If we could start Day 1 with an awesome classroom behavior management plan worked out and prepared? My first year would have been a lot different.
I have used many different kinds of incentives in my classroom: stickers, Class Dojo, positive notes home, Star Student, Dolphin Dollars, etc. These things work- but I wanted to add something this year that would really get kids excited. Something that would be brand NEW and very motivating.
That’s when I came up with the Catchem’ Critter Classroom Behavior Management System!
