How to Maximise Student Engagement and Reinforce Positive Behaviours through House Points

Are you looking for a way to improve student engagement and reinforce positive behaviours within your classroom?


Look no further than house points!


As a teacher, you know how important it is to motivate your students and keep them engaged in the learning process. Implementing a house points system can be an effective tool to achieve this goal.


Through a house points system students can earn points for good behaviours, such as:

  • Participating in class

  • Helping their classmates

  • Following classroom rules

Points can be tallied on a weekly or monthly basis, and the class with the most points wins a reward, such as extra free time or a class party.

But why are house points so effective at maximizing student engagement and reinforcing positive behaviours?


Let’s dive into some of the key benefits:


Fostering a sense of community


House points create a sense of community within the classroom, as students work together to earn points for their team. This can lead to a more positive classroom culture and encourage teamwork and collaboration.


Encouraging positive behaviours

By rewarding positive behaviours, house points encourage students to act in a way that benefits the classroom as a whole. This can lead to a more respectful and productive learning environment.


Whether it be putting your hand up in class, helping out a fellow classmate or simply getting an answer correct. These are all positive habits and activities which house points can easily support.


Boosting motivation


House points can be a great motivator for students, especially those who are more competitive. The opportunity to earn points and win a reward can be a powerful incentive to participate and engage in class.


Providing immediate feedback


House points provide immediate feedback to students, which can be a powerful tool for reinforcing positive behaviours. Students can see the direct impact of their actions and are more likely to repeat behaviours that earn them points.


Whether you’re teaching in-person or remotely, implementing a house points system can be a fun and interactive way to create a positive learning environment.


So why not give it a try and see the positive impact it can have on your students?
