the years teachers have expressed a need to incentivize their programs
to encourage good behavior during class time. One such technique, with
effective proven results, is the use of Bible Bucks. After all, who doesn't like to be rewarded?
class, teacher informs the children of the desired behavior to earn
the Bible Bucks, such as listening attentively, raising hand to ask or
answer questions, participating by answering questions, showing
respect to other students and teachers, etc.
teacher or class assistant doles out the Bible Bucks to behaving
children during lesson time. Children must leave
their money on the table and
not play with it. If they misbehave by not following the expectations established before class, the money is taken
away, one buck at a time. When the
"sit-still" part of lesson time is over, and before moving
the next activity, children put their $ into
their "banks," (index card holders or envelopes with their names written
on them) and then store them away until the next lesson.
predetermined number of Bible Bucks are earned for desired behavior,
the children can use the "money" to purchase prizes or other
rewards the teacher has made available.
may print as many Bible Bucks as you need for your students.
