Brownie Points

A couple of years ago my aunt gave me the idea of using brownie points as an incentive for my students.  I liked the idea and implemented it right away, and it was such a success I wanted to share it with everyone.

To earn a brownie point my students must receive a compliment from another adult or as a class show extraordinary behavior.  When they earn a brownie point they get to put a 'brownie' on the pan.  When the pan fills up, I have to make them a batch of brownies.  They LOVE earning brownie points and really work to earn them.

I use a metal cookie sheet and crinkled brown construction paper for my brownies.  I've attached a magnet to the back, so I can use the paper over and over again. Over the years, my style has evolved, so here's an updated version of my Brownie Points.

I love this. I am a Family Consumer Science teacher and this is so perfect for my classes! I will be doing this one. Question: How many brownies do you have on the tray? I do realize I could cut them into bars or bites... depending on the size, but I was just curious as to how many you have.

I'm actually not sure, but I think I have 24 pieces. However, it's REALLY hard for my class to earn that many points, so I may make my pieces larger next year.
