Give That Kid a Gold Star

ages 3-6

Activity Detail

Sometimes, remembering a rule can be difficult. After all, "use your big kid manners" is a fairly abstract concept. Help to make good manners and personal responsibility easier by breaking the concepts down into pieces (don't tease your brother, pick up your toys, etc.), and then make following those rules a tangible process by creating a chart where each child can see the rule and receives a star or sticker for each day that he or she succeeds in completing the task. At the end of the week, you can offer a treat or an allowance in return for their good choices. (Don't forget: This is also a great opportunity to practice counting and early math skills!)

I used a similar idea with my daughter and it worked great!

I found that in my Kindergarten classroom, focusing on one rule at a time taht a child was having difficulty with was helpful. When they had "mastered" one rule, we went on to another one.
