Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership,  Teamwork

Students at Obama Elementary participated in a reward incentive to curb behavior issues in the classroom. With the use of the flag football equipment provided by Fuel Up to Play 60, scholars in the building were rewarded each week with activity time because of their duty to be respectful, be responsible, and be safe in and around their peers. This program has given the students a goal to succeed at and built their confidence in their own abilities in problem solving, teamwork, and communication skills. Thanks to FUTP 60 for providing a reason to build this type of connection with our students!

How did you accomplish your goals?

With the incentive, behavior referrals decreased and leadership skills increased.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Getting the scholars to understand how increasing the activity time will benefit their behavior. By first getting them to like the incentive and who they are participating with, transformed into the students not wanting to miss out on the incentive.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Working with the classroom teachers to encourage problem solving skills, the scholars created a pledge that they say each time they come to the gym for activity incentive that they remind themselves to have good behavior around their peers.
