People of Integrity
I have a tough time leaving my students with a substitute -- or as I prefer to call him/her -- guest teacher. There are days when the person who comes to take my place has amazing skills and can manage and TEACH my class. I tell my students that no matter who is in charge of the class I expect them to do what they are supposed to. I have them make a list called, "People of Integrity" and they write down names of students who are following directions whether I am watching or not.
When I come back, students who are on several lists earn Privileges and Coupons. I find that we are all more focused on the positive, and there are fewer people in my room whose poor choices I need to address.

Here are some other ways I use Privileges and Coupons:
1. The Desk Fairy
2. Privileges and Coupons -- my incentive system
3. 30 Days Till the End of the Year
