As we began the school year, we wanted to have specific locations in our school in which our students could turn in their PAWS cards as an entry into a weekly or bi-weekly drawing for a prize. In order to incentivize our teachers to hand out PAWS cards to students for good behavior, when a student enters a drawing, the teacher (whose name is either written or stamped on the back of the card) is also included and will receive the same prize as the student. At our first drawing ($25 Wal-Mart card), there were over 300 entries into the drawing. This is a great opportunity to reward those teachers who continue to use this reward system for the remainder of our first year of RTI2-B implementation.
