How do we get buy-in from our students? The answer is pretty simple: PBIS rewards!

PBIS Rewards Ideas

Rewarding positive behaviors and direction following from students grows rapport as well as gets other students on board with the plan. There are many different ways this can be done, so let’s dive into a few PBIS reward ideas that are easy to implement in your building.

Giftcards

Cost: $5

This is an extremely low-cost reward that gets students to buy in immediately. 

When we talk about gift cards, it doesn’t have to be $25. That could bankrupt a teacher if they try and pass one out to every student in their class! 

Gift cards can be quick, simple, and cheap solutions for about $5 each. Perhaps there are fast-food chains throughout the neighborhood that the students like to grab for lunch. You can even give a gift car to a streaming service or digital gaming platform your students use.

Special Seating

Cost: FREE

Most teachers typically have that “comfortable” spot in their room for students to hang out or work. 

Allow students to use those spots more frequently when you catch them “being good” in the school. 

For example, maybe you have a comfy chair or recliner in your classroom. If a student earns a PBIS reward, they then get to sit in that chair while the class takes notes on the topic at hand. The best part about this reward is that it’s free and easy!

Brain Breaks

Cost: FREE

Brain breaks are another great PBIS rewards ideas that’s quick, easy, and free. 

If one of your students is meeting behavior expectations, offer them a brain break. It’s that simple – and costs nothing. 

If your school is a 1 to 1 district, perhaps you give them five minutes of free time to play a school-appropriate game on their device. As we all know, students crave the ability to do what they will on their devices, so why not give it to them (within reason of course!).

Food/Treats 

Cost: Under $5

Depending on your school district's policy, treats in the form of food or candy are also a quick and easy PBIS reward idea to give students for their positive behavior. 

Please keep in mind any food allergies when utilizing this particular reward.

PBIS Rewards

Homework Pass

Cost: FREE

Providing homework passes for students is also a quick and free PBIS reward idea for your classroom. As a teacher, you’ll be able to set your own routine or rules for this type of reward. Perhaps you only allow students a certain number of uses or it’s only redeemable on certain assignments. It’s always important that the ability to learn and improve academically still comes first over this PBIS reward.

Participating in School Assembly

Cost: FREE

Allowing a student to participate in a school assembly is an excellent way to get immediate buy-in. 

This PBIS reward idea could take shape in a variety of ways. For instance, there could be a student versus staff basketball game. Students that are caught being good would then get to be actual players in the game. 

The best thing about this is that it helps build a positive rapport and atmosphere within the school because it allows students to work with their teachers in a realm outside of education.

School Supplies

Cost: Under $10

One thing that all teachers can agree on is that it seems students never have the school supplies at the time they need them most. One way to combat this would be to offer school supplies as a PBIS reward for students.

This doesn’t have to be boring. Instead of it being the necessary supplies (most teachers tend to lend those out without even thinking!), it could be gel pens, glitter pens, special markers, or colored pencils. 

Providing something that is a little more unique and special than your typical run-of-the-mill school supply is what will excite your students.

School-Wide Spirit Days

Cost: FREE

Spirit Days in the schools are another idea to foster an inclusive environment and make an excellent PBIS reward for the entire student body.

It can also be an individual reward: have the student who receives it design the spirit day. Superhero Day? Sports Team Day? Crazy Sock Day? 

Let the choice be up to the student and watch others jump on board with meeting their behavior expectations!

School Spirit Day

Extra Recess/Outdoor Time

Cost: Free

In warm weather seasons, providing students with more time outside of the classroom is another great PBIS Reward. 

If enough students select this option as their reward, give them some time to go outside and let their imagination – and their energy – run wild. If your looking for more resources for younger students you should take a look at our guide to PBIS in Elementary Schools.

Lunch with a Teacher

Cost: Under $20

This is very similar to the treat option that we discussed earlier because food is always motivating. This just takes it a step further. 

Some students truly need that positive attention from their teachers in the building. This reward achieves that by allowing the school to provide a special lunch with a teacher (or teachers) of their choice. 

Not only do students get the perk of a special lunch, but it also allows them to build a rapport with their educators that they may not typically experience.

Music Choice During Academic Work Time

Cost: Free

Students oftentimes find themselves with classwork they need to complete during class, whether it be in the form of a project or independent assignments. Allow the student who is succeeding with PBIS to pick the music for the class to listen to.

The only caveat is you’ll have to be prepared to do a quick search to make sure it’s school appropriate. An alternative option would be for them to pick a digital streaming station to listen to.

Morning Announcements

Cost: Free

Let’s face it. Some of our learners love being the center of attention. They crave the spotlight and thoroughly enjoy it. Reward it! Utilize morning announcements as a chance for that student to deliver the exciting news for the entire building over the intercom in the morning.

12 Cheap & Easy PBIS Rewards Ideas for Students

So you want to implement PBIS in your school? It’s important that you get student buy-in. Rewards can help.
By 
Justin McElwee
 | 
April 26, 2022

Implementing PBIS in your school is a great way to engage students and increase the number of positive behaviors and reactions they have throughout the day. However, in order for it to be successful, there has to be buy-in.

How do we get buy-in from our students? The answer is pretty simple: PBIS rewards!

PBIS Rewards Ideas

Rewarding positive behaviors and direction following from students grows rapport as well as gets other students on board with the plan. There are many different ways this can be done, so let’s dive into a few PBIS reward ideas that are easy to implement in your building.

Giftcards

Cost: $5

This is an extremely low-cost reward that gets students to buy in immediately. 

When we talk about gift cards, it doesn’t have to be $25. That could bankrupt a teacher if they try and pass one out to every student in their class! 

Gift cards can be quick, simple, and cheap solutions for about $5 each. Perhaps there are fast-food chains throughout the neighborhood that the students like to grab for lunch. You can even give a gift car to a streaming service or digital gaming platform your students use.

Special Seating

Cost: FREE

Most teachers typically have that “comfortable” spot in their room for students to hang out or work. 

Allow students to use those spots more frequently when you catch them “being good” in the school. 

For example, maybe you have a comfy chair or recliner in your classroom. If a student earns a PBIS reward, they then get to sit in that chair while the class takes notes on the topic at hand. The best part about this reward is that it’s free and easy!

Brain Breaks

Cost: FREE

Brain breaks are another great PBIS rewards ideas that’s quick, easy, and free. 

If one of your students is meeting behavior expectations, offer them a brain break. It’s that simple – and costs nothing. 

If your school is a 1 to 1 district, perhaps you give them five minutes of free time to play a school-appropriate game on their device. As we all know, students crave the ability to do what they will on their devices, so why not give it to them (within reason of course!).

Food/Treats 

Cost: Under $5

Depending on your school district's policy, treats in the form of food or candy are also a quick and easy PBIS reward idea to give students for their positive behavior. 

Please keep in mind any food allergies when utilizing this particular reward.

PBIS Rewards

Homework Pass

Cost: FREE

Providing homework passes for students is also a quick and free PBIS reward idea for your classroom. As a teacher, you’ll be able to set your own routine or rules for this type of reward. Perhaps you only allow students a certain number of uses or it’s only redeemable on certain assignments. It’s always important that the ability to learn and improve academically still comes first over this PBIS reward.

Participating in School Assembly

Cost: FREE

Allowing a student to participate in a school assembly is an excellent way to get immediate buy-in. 

This PBIS reward idea could take shape in a variety of ways. For instance, there could be a student versus staff basketball game. Students that are caught being good would then get to be actual players in the game. 

The best thing about this is that it helps build a positive rapport and atmosphere within the school because it allows students to work with their teachers in a realm outside of education.

School Supplies

Cost: Under $10

One thing that all teachers can agree on is that it seems students never have the school supplies at the time they need them most. One way to combat this would be to offer school supplies as a PBIS reward for students.

This doesn’t have to be boring. Instead of it being the necessary supplies (most teachers tend to lend those out without even thinking!), it could be gel pens, glitter pens, special markers, or colored pencils. 

Providing something that is a little more unique and special than your typical run-of-the-mill school supply is what will excite your students.

School-Wide Spirit Days

Cost: FREE

Spirit Days in the schools are another idea to foster an inclusive environment and make an excellent PBIS reward for the entire student body.

It can also be an individual reward: have the student who receives it design the spirit day. Superhero Day? Sports Team Day? Crazy Sock Day? 

Let the choice be up to the student and watch others jump on board with meeting their behavior expectations!

School Spirit Day

Extra Recess/Outdoor Time

Cost: Free

In warm weather seasons, providing students with more time outside of the classroom is another great PBIS Reward. 

If enough students select this option as their reward, give them some time to go outside and let their imagination – and their energy – run wild. If your looking for more resources for younger students you should take a look at our guide to PBIS in Elementary Schools.

Lunch with a Teacher

Cost: Under $20

This is very similar to the treat option that we discussed earlier because food is always motivating. This just takes it a step further. 

Some students truly need that positive attention from their teachers in the building. This reward achieves that by allowing the school to provide a special lunch with a teacher (or teachers) of their choice. 

Not only do students get the perk of a special lunch, but it also allows them to build a rapport with their educators that they may not typically experience.

Music Choice During Academic Work Time

Cost: Free

Students oftentimes find themselves with classwork they need to complete during class, whether it be in the form of a project or independent assignments. Allow the student who is succeeding with PBIS to pick the music for the class to listen to.

The only caveat is you’ll have to be prepared to do a quick search to make sure it’s school appropriate. An alternative option would be for them to pick a digital streaming station to listen to.

Morning Announcements

Cost: Free

Let’s face it. Some of our learners love being the center of attention. They crave the spotlight and thoroughly enjoy it. Reward it! Utilize morning announcements as a chance for that student to deliver the exciting news for the entire building over the intercom in the morning. 

PBIS Rewards & Your School

There you have it! Twelve quick and relatively inexpensive PBIS rewards ideas students will love. Cheap and easy not convenient enough? Try our list of totally free rewards for students. By Implementing a reward system and following PBIS best practices, or placing a PBIS Store in your schools, you’ll build a tremendous amount of buy-in for your PBIS Tiers. It’ll provide a positive behavior support for both learners and teachers. Looking to create a cohort of peers from other schools in your district? Check out our resources on taking PBIS district-wide. Or if your new to behavior support you can take a look at our guide on how to start your PBIS program. What more could you ask for?
