Almost every child loves to draw, so why not use that as an incentive for good behavior? Tell your class that if they do ________, you will teach them how to draw one thing. Use one of the children's 'how to draw' books from the library and guide students through making a frog, dog, or funny face. Give them 3 minutes to practice their new drawing, then get back to the real learnin' of the day.
Take it one step further and buy a small notebook for each child to keep in their desk. This can be their drawing book for the year and every time they earn a new 'drawing lesson,' they can add it to their book.
