7 Fun Classroom Rewards & Incentives for Kindergarten

Classroom incentives are great ways to motivate, encourage and inspire your kindergarten class. They can help encourage children to work hard, focus, and behave well.

Kindergarten classroom rewards can be used as positive reinforcement for learning, good behavior, hard work, and almost anything else you might think of!


The following strategies will help you implement a successful reward system for your kindergarten classroom:


  • Be specific about expectations. Tell students exactly what behavior is expected of them.

  • Be consistent when rewarding and punishing behaviors.

  • Use a variety of rewards. Variety is the spice of life! The same old thing gets boring after a while, so try to keep it interesting by rotating between several different rewards and incentives.

  • As with any other behavior, moderation is key! Don't overdo it with praise...or rewards. You don't want your students to become dependent upon praise or rewards for doing what they are supposed to be doing anyway.


Here are some fun classroom rewards and incentives that are sure to be a hit with your kindergarteners.
