Building on the Positive ~ A classroom management tool!

Building on the Positive ~ A classroom management tool!

Have you ever had a class that thrives on rewards & positive praise but what you were trying just wasn’t offering the results you desired?  Years ago, we had classes that needed a positive reward system that was easy to use but one that would make a HUGE impact.  We were also learning about our solids at the time.  That was when the idea of the “Happy Cube” was born.  We have never been disappointed with the results since then!  We called it the “Happy Cube” because not only did it have the reward cards around it, but also happy face stickers all over it.


We started off by saying: “I am so happy with the way you _____, go roll the Happy Cube!” or “You made my heart smile when you ____, go roll the Happy Cube!”

Instantly, almost like magic, other kids started doing the same positive behavior so they too could roll the “Happy Cube!”

We now call it “The Reward Cube” because not every class uses happy faces as much as we do.

It has been redesigned to be easy for you to download, follow step by step directions, and presto you have your very own cube! The cube would even be great for rewarding young kids at home for all of the positive things they do!

Many of the items to reward them with are free which makes it even nicer if you are on a tight budget.

All of the materials are provided in the product except an empty Kleenex box.

You will get:
-the pages to make your cube cute!!!
-all of the reward icons for the students to earn when they roll
-slides with some printable prizes
-ideas on how to organize your own reward center
-labels to use to organize your rewards
-a happy class when they get to have the fun rolling!

Take a look at everything you get in these products…

I'm Back!!!!

After being without a personal computer for months, my car catching on fire, lots of busy activities with my family, and being sick for almost 2 full weeks ... 
I’m back!



I have really missed my computer and I am super excited to have a new one!

My BEST friend and teaching partner, Alison, has been working overtime for the two of us & I could not have a better friend.  The next blog will show you what she has invested a HUGE amount of time on. 
You don't want to miss it!
Back to work!
