Here is a classroom management technique that I saw in a colleagues room (thanks Ms. Phillips) and had to try.
My K kids sit at tables that I have designated as certain colors (I use this when calling to line up, etc.). I laminated a sheet of paper to match each table and I got some little hands from the teacher supply store to laminate as well. I added some drops of Aleene's Tack It Over and Over glue to the colored paper. Now the hands will stick.
Here are the expectations for students to earn a high five.

Once a table earns 5 high fives they get to choose a reward!
This can obviously also be used on a smaller scale to reward individual students.
