'Find a Star' secondary rewards are such a hit in my online ESL lessons and I'm sure that they will be in yours as well! They provide a welcome break and a bit of fun throughout the lesson and give my students loads of vocabulary practice at the same time. Not only that, but they are awesome for extension activities and provide loads of opportunities for free talk with your student/s.
This resource is suitable for all online teachers, including ESL teachers who work with companies such as VIPKID, DadaABC, Palfish, GoGoKid, SayABC, iTutorGroup and Whales English.
What You Will Receive
20 printable 'Find a Star' reward boards
- Printable number 'buttons' for covering the reward boards
Printable blank 'buttons' for covering the reward boards (add whatever skills you would like your student/s to practice to these blank buttons, ie. shapes, colors, sight words etc)
- Teachers' Notes- including instructions for preparing and using the reward systems in your online ESL lessons.
The 'Find a Star' reward boards included in this resource are:
Happy Shapes (x2)
Little Monsters (x2)

Preparing the Reward System
These reward systems are quick and easy to prepare. Simply:
- Print the reward board that you would like to use and the number buttons on Page 4.
- Cut out the number buttons.
- For extra durability, laminate the reward board and the buttons.
- Place a piece of Blu Tack on the back of each button.
- Your reward system is ready to use! Happy teaching!
Using the Reward System
Place the 'Find a Star' board on a clipboard and stick the number buttons over each circle. You can place them in order (ie. 1-9 - this is recommended for younger students) or scramble the numbers. When your student/s perform well, say “Great Work!” and ask them to choose a number. Reveal what is underneath the number and say “Good job! You got a star!” or “Oh wow, you got a _________!” Remember to reward your student/s with a star in your teaching platform when they uncover a star.

The easiest way to access your purchases in the future is to set up a Spark ESL account. All of your purchases will be stored in your personal account and you will be able to easily access them at a later date if need be.
