Sticker Charts


 Share

Recommended Posts

we have been advised by our improvement advisor to start usnig sticker charts with our children as we have a few behaviour issues at the moment.

 

Do any of you use them?

Do you give a reward when they reach a certain number?

What sort of reward would you give?

 

Thanks :1b

They use them in a fairly limited way at playgroup, just for those who are particularly challenging. The charts are private to the staff, the child and the parent though.

I dont know what, if any, final reward there is, but could you match it to something the child likes most to play with or do.

We have occasionally in the past used sticker charts in the back of their Learning Journey. Nice and private but accessible to the child. Seemed to work for us.

I think sticker charts are a great resource for families, and may work in larger settings if they are private. Public sticker charts in large settings I don't like - either the good girls get all the stickers, or the "naughty boys", and children are always accutely aware of who has more stikcers than them - and will get upset even if they have just filled up their chart and got a new one, they still view it as having no stickers. Or people steal them from others

 

Alternatively, marbles in a jar is a great whole group system, as children can award each other and the staff marbles, all get to participate in the reward - maybe a new toy, a trip etc.

Hi

 

We use sticker charts actually we got some PTS ones that were nice and they are always private to staff, child and parent. However they don't always work with all children, we have had some children who either get bored or who don't care enough about the sticker in the first place for it to be an incentive.

 

In these cases we use either activity incentives so they can pick an activity they really enjoy engaging with, sometimes we can work with the family and link up with activities that are done at home, we kind of go with whatever works and that can be really individual.
