    "B.A.E" Cards a Hit Bookmark

    The Explorer team has implemented a positive behavior strategy with great success this year. Every three weeks, students receive a “BAE Card” (behavior, attitude, effort). The cards are divided into 3 sections, with one letter on each section. Students write their names in each letter box and are required to take their BAE cards with them to each class. They must keep them out on the corner of their desks at all times.

    If a student makes a poor choice (examples include minor disruptions of class, being off task, missing assignments, etc.), the teacher will remove one letter from the BAE card. If the card is not out on the desk and the teacher has to ask the student to get it out to take a letter, two letters will be removed. This motivates students to keep their cards out and visible at all times.

    When a teacher removes a letter, they record the date, their name, and the offense next to the student’s name on a Google doc that is shared among the team teachers. This prevents students from leaving their BAE card at home and not being able to turn in a letter, trying to use someone else’s card, etc.

    At the end of the three week earning period, students are taken to the auditorium and divided into two groups (those with at least one letter left, and those who have lost their cards or lost all three letters). At that time, students are informed of their reward for keeping at least one letter for the whole earning period.

    Students who lost their BAE card or who lost all three letters are taken to classrooms to work on meaningful assignments (Study Island, iXL, review packets, etc.). Students who have at least one letter are allowed to put their remaining letters into a drawing for small prizes (candy, drinks, etc.). In addition, all students who earned the BAE reward by maintaining at least one letter are allowed to participate in our BAE reward for that earning period. Past BAE rewards have included free computer time, a trip to the ice skating rink, an entertaining guest speaker, a trip to the roller skating rink, snacks and drinks during a team reward movie, a bowling trip, etc.

    We have found this system to be extremely effective. The students are always excited when the BAE reward is announced, since it changes each time, and they have no idea ahead of time what the prize will be. Students who may not qualify for Honor Roll or Perfect Attendance rewards often qualify for the BAE reward, meaning they are recognized for making positive behavior choices. The system is easy to understand and implement, and students have a constant reminder of expectations when they see the card on their desk.
