This is a fun addition to your every day lesson, which can work hand in hand with your school’s own reward system. On the first page, students fill in some details (which makes them use their basic Year 7 vocabulary!) - it asks for their name, age, nationality, language(s), country etc. The other pages are blank with some background decoration related to the French culture. I stamp those (with just ink stamps) every time they show the right behaviour throughout a lesson. When a page is full (you decide how many stamps that means!) they either receive a token (from our school’s reward system) or a prize (sweets, etc.) Students have responded very well to this and some of my colleagues are interested in using it in their classroom too.
