Here at Van Winkle Early Childhood Center, we love to reward our students in a way that encourages them to make good choices throughout the day. During the month, our teachers are given Super Hero Bucks to give to students who are making good choices. These choices include, being kind to friends, keeping their hands and feet to themselves, and following directions. At the end of the month, students are able to visit our Super Hero Store. While there, they can pick out pencils, toys, slime, and any number of cool treats. Each item is a super hero dollar, so we encourage students to count their money and their items to be sure they have enough to buy the item.
This is a fun activity for the scholars, but it also serves as a simulation of the real experience of shopping in a store. If you know of any organizations that would like to donate these small items to the store, please don't hesitate to send them our way. Also, look for pictures of the little shoppers on the website!
Keep making those great choices!
