I give each student a 3x5 card decorated with a sticker. These are called their punch cards. I keep them in a basket by their mailboxes and whenever they return homework, I let them give themselves a punch with a paper punch. Also, when they show exceptional positive behavior, they can give themselves a punch. When they receive ten punches, they go to the treasure chest. My students love this! Sometimes if the entire class has an exceptional day, I give everyone a punch.
