  2. 2. What are Mystery Motivators? <ul><li>Mystery Motivators are an acknowledgment tool that works like a lottery system. </li></ul><ul><li>If the student has been using positive behavior all day, the student is able to scratch off that day on the Mystery Motivator chart. </li></ul><ul><li>If the student finds the Mystery Motivator symbol on that days spot, the student can select the reward they won. </li></ul><ul><li>The prizes can be either small or large depending on the reward menu you set up. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Setting up a Mystery Motivator Chart <ul><li>Have spaces for each day of the week </li></ul><ul><li>Have a Mystery Motivator symbol or letter. (Many use an “M”) </li></ul><ul><li>Use invisible ink so students can color in the space to see if they won a prize. </li></ul><ul><li>Choose random days for the Mystery Motivator symbol. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a reward menu and prizes </li></ul>
  4. 4. Scenarios <ul><li>Mystery Motivators can be used to reinforce homework completion and accuracy. </li></ul><ul><li>Every time a student turns in homework that is completed and correct. That student gets a chance to scratch off that day’s Mystery Motivator to see if they won a prize or not. </li></ul>
  5. 5.
