Beloved Rascals Strategy #9: The Bulls Eye Game

The Bulls Eye represents five levels of behavior from best (5) to worst (1).  At the end of the day, your Beloved Rascal self scores her behavior.  You score her behavior as well.

If the scores match, the student receives two points.  If the scores are one point apart, the student receives one point.  Otherwise, no points are awarded.  Twenty-five points are needed to “purchase” a prize the student has chosen (set the maximum cost at $5).   The reason we never give away material rewards in our classroom is because we save them  In essence, you are rewarding your student for accountability and honesty … even on her worst day, she can leave school a winner if she sees the world from your point of view … a rare, almost unimaginable, achievement for challenging kids.
