Sticker Award Charts
I award stickers to my students for several things:
*homework turned in on time
*random acts of kindness
*anything I feel that merits
Instead of buying pre-made charts (which you can do), I made a template and run my charts on used tag or cover stock that are blank on one side. I use stamps this year to add "flavor", but in the past I've also let the child cut a picture out of a magazine and glue it on. Or draw a picture.
Basically, the only thing I've bought are the stickers themselves, and again the dollar discount stores allow you to buy a gazillion itty-bitty stickers relatively cheap. Also, don't forget that stores discount their seasonal/holiday stickers right after the holiday, so you can stock up for the following year.
Oh! And once a child fills their sticker chart? I have a box of toys/suckers/balloons/goodies where they can pick their prize. And then I put up a new chart so they can start all over again.
