Blue Chip Rewards
October 20, 2009
Our school uses blue chip rewards rather than an abundance of medals or certificates. Teachers are issued blue plastic coins that say, "Caught in a good act." We hand them out to students who we witness doing admirable deeds — picking up paper on the floor, helping a classmate, etc. On Fridays, all students who earn a blue chip that week are excused ten minutes early for ice cream before school lets out for the weekend.
