As a primary school teacher, I just have to love reward charts! Now, definitely not the best produced reward charts, but they have certainly done the trick in times of need! My tip would be to make a clear goal for your reward chart, what exactly is it that you want your child to do? What behaviour do they have to show you to gain a reward?
A first reward chart
This was a first reward chart, made from cutting out his favourite Birthday cards from his 2nd birthday. A simple chart that uses a picture to show the desired behaviour, in his case brushing teeth and staying in bed! Boxes in a row to add stickers for when he stayed in bed or brushed teeth!
Cloud babies reward chart
This was a very quickly made reward chart on one of “those days” that you just need something! My boy was particularly enjoying the BBC show cloud babies, so I drew each cloud baby and told him that he had to keep the cloud babies inside the cloud so that he could watch an episode after his bath in the evening. Of course the tricky part was that the cloud babies would leave the cloud if he wasn’t following instructions! The cloud babies of course could go back in the cloud for following instructions or doing something extra special!
Fireman Sam reward chart
This fireman Sam chart was made for when James started using the potty. A Fireman Sam was added each time he went to the potty, and when he reached the top he got an extra special treat of his choice, often a cup of warm milk watching Fireman Sam!Fireman Sam Reward Chart
