Optimum Organization : Reward Coupons

I am dropping by with a quick post about my reward coupon organization system! picture of reward coupons, baseball card sleeves, kickin' it with class

I simply print, cut out, and laminate my reward cards. Then I place one of each type inside a baseball card holder like the ones here (I bought mine at Wal-mart) and then I put the rest of those cards behind it in the same sleeve. Students could look through the 2 pages of rewards quickly and just pull out the card they were choosing! No more cards scattered everywhere! 

One more small tip. I would have the students write their name with a sharpie or Vis-A-Vis on the back of the laminated card so if they dropped it before using it, I could return it to them. Then, when students "cashed" in, I would erase their name by covering it with dry erase marker and wiping clean so that it could be reused (like this). Gotta save money on that colored ink!

Thanks for stopping by. Please head on over to Fun in Room 4B or Ladybug's Teacher Files and see all the other amazing ideas!


  1. I love the idea of letting the kids write their name on the back of their coupon until they are ready to use it. I usually schedule their rewards and then we both end up forgetting and it's terrible. I'm definitely going to give this a try. Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a fab idea! I've been using a prize bowl all year, which, although effective, runs expensive and I want the kids to move away from material things all the time. I thought I'd move onto reward cards and maybe even some behaviour beads but could just envisage the wild rummaging that would occur. The binder idea is so much better. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Very good idea! It beats my zip-loc baggies that I usually end up putting mine in. I also like your idea of laminating and re-using them! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I've never used reward coupons, but moving from self contained to a K-5 specialist, this might be the idea for me. I've pinned it for later - thanks!
