So it is the end-of-the-year and behavior management can begin to get a little tough. There are so many GREAT ideas out there to help keep kids focused on learning and still have fun!

One of those is "Popping for Positive Behavior!"

Behavior Management Strategies, Balloon Pop, Planet Happy Smiles

You can make up your own rules, but here is how it works in my class ...

Supplies: Signs, slips of prizes/rewards, and balloons.  I used thumbtacks to attach them to the board but you could string them on a line with  cute clothespins.

I rolled the small papers (folding doesn't work well) and stuffed them in each balloon, blew them up, and tied them.

Then, I tacked them to the bulletin board.
I hung 25 in a 5x5 arrangement.

Each day our class has had a FANTASTIC day, they get to pop a balloon.  There is a small paper with a prize.  Whatever balloon they pop, we will do that activity/prize the next day.

Here is another board I worked on for a teammate.  It would be great for anyone who is doing a Movie Theme or Hollywood Theme!

You could also do this as a countdown.  I just don't countdown in my classroom because sometimes kids can get wilder the closer the countdown gets to the end. Plus, I am already really sad about losing this group!

Grab it in our TPT Store for just a dollar!
We love all of the AMAZING teachers out there!

  3. Can't wait to try this balloon idea with my kiddos! I think this appeals to me as I'm practically a world champion with my dart throwing skills when I play the carnival version. Lol. Thank goodness this is a much safer version for kids and they get to win a prize each time. Teacher Ms H ~ Third Is the Word
