I found this idea on the WWW a few years ago (sorry can't remember where?!) I keep chapsticks, or "sweet spots" in a basket on my small group table. Also, at the beginning of the year, I will carry 1 or 2 in my pocket. I use these to reinforce positive behavior...walking quietly in the hall, following directions the first time, being a helpful student, really could use for whatever you would like. The students just put the chapstick on the top of their hand. The sweet spot stays with them for a bit..especially if they don't wash their hands (ewwww!) They absolutely love it! I definitely go over with them that these are ONLY for their hands and we never put sweet spots on their lips! I am in the process of making myself a very cute basket for them! I will post a picture when I am done. I am telling you, sweet spots work miracles! As soon as I give a student one, then everyone else is doing exactly what I want them to. Oh, I do have one important rule...we do not "ask" for sweet spots!
