Rewarding Students - cooking, lunch, cushions, art

What elementary school kids don't love to spend extra time with their teacher?  Mine all LOVE it so I use it as a reward.  After earning sticker on an extended behavior sticker chart (mines a race track to match my behavior system) students got to scratch a card to see their prize.

After the card reveals their reward they can choose when to "cash it in".   Here is cooking activity #1: Making Cheerio Crispy Treats

and Ta-Da Microwave Cheerio Crispies!  Here's the recipe:

  • 1  Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2  In large microwavable bowl, microwave butter and marshmallows uncovered on High about 2 minutes, stirring after each minute, until mixture is smooth. With pot holders, remove bowl from microwave.
  • 3  Immediately stir in cereal until evenly coated. Press mixture evenly into pan using buttered back of spoon. Cool at least 10 minutes.
  • 4  With table knife, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store in a loosely covered container.

  • Another microwave treat!  
    This one is made from pancake mix :)

    I made it with water since I didnt have milk and it was still delicious!  I also had some toppings for the kids to add in including chocolate chips, blueberries, and sprinkle.
