I use Class Dojo for classroom management, when the children earn x amount of points they get to choose a reward. The rewards range from stickers (5 points) to homework passes (50 points). If a child earns 15 points they can choose a prize from our prize box.
I only introduced the prize box after the Easter holidays as I wanted something new and different. From September – April the children were happy with the rewards (choose a seat/partner/pe warm up/ job etc.) but I felt it was time for something else. I find that Prize Boxes can be very expensive to keep stocked up and have prizes that the children like so I’m glad I will only be using it for a few months.
