Encouraging and rewarding positive behaviour can not only affect the child who is behaving correctly in the first place but it can inspire the atmosphere of the classroom and those in it to strive in how the act themselves. Before this however it must be taken into account that there are reasons for certain behaviour (family issues, disagreements with peers, too much energy etc.) and the correct way to go around handing out rewards to certain students. It’s acceptable to praise the child who is always good and does everything with enthusiasm however take a moment to praise a student, who usually does misbehave, who does something good you will see a greater impact rewarding this behaviour and there should be a gradual change in how they act in class. Whether they are top of the class or tend to struggle with staying in control, every time they are encouraged or rewarded it boosts their self-esteem and the ability to reassure their selves and can also strengthen the way they feel about their work and feel proud in doing so.
