I am always looking for ways to promote good behavior in my classroom! This is a fun, inexpensive way to help kiddos see and understand when they are doing the right thing!
Here’s how Behavior Buddies work in my classroom:
Each day I choose a Behavior Buddy to pass around our classroom during the day.
He gets passed around during our morning meeting so we know who’s turn it is to talk.
If I see someone doing the right thing without being asked, I quietly hand them a Behavior Buddy!
Then, when I see someone else doing the right thing, I ask the kiddo who has the Behavior Buddy to pass him to the next kiddo.
Whoever has the Behavior Buddy at the end of the day gets a Shout Out Sticker for their sticker chart, and a cute little certificate to take home to show their parents!
All about how I use Shout Out Stickers for Positive Behavior HERE.
We do have Behavior Buddies rules.
The buddies are not toys for playing with. Whoever has a buddy can carry them around, but they don’t get thrown or left on the floor.
If you are asked to pass the buddy, NO WHINING!
My kiddos LOVE having a behavior buddy during the day.
I only pass one buddy around a day. If you were ambitious, I am sure that you could pass around multiple buddies.
This is an easy system to leave for a substitute as well.
Now for the freebie I promised you! These shout out stickers should be printed on 2×4 labels and cut in half. They would work for any Behavior Buddy that you may pass around.
