Description of Idea
This behavioral system is used as a class award for students in Kindergarten through second grade. If a class is able to make it through a class period with a predetermined number of warnings they will get to "move the class car" to the next state. When the class car arrives at a predetermined state they celebrate by having choice activity time. Usually the celebration state is the eighth or ninth state a class car moves to along the road. The states are placed on the wall around the gym connected by border that looks like roads.
