Gold Medal Behavior

As we are finally winding down our ABC book, my plans for the Letter V were a bit of a well... complete flop. What to do, what to do??? Brain storm and act quick!!! Since the Winter Olympics are upon us and our memory verse for V is: ..victory rests with the Lord Proverbs 21:31 I thought doing something with a "medal theme" would work perfectly!!! And that is how our Gold Medal Behavior Charts were born. Most of these verses came from Character Trait Memory Verse Cards for Children, but a few I changed. Another great resource would be For Instruction in Righteousness by Doorposts

Be Helpful

When we have the opportunity to help anyone, we should do it.

Galatians 6:10

Be Thorough

..(do) everything the Lord command(s). Genesis 6:22

Be Obedient

Children, obey your parents the way the Lord wants.

Ephesians 6:1

Be Respectful

Show respect for all people..

Respect God.

1 Peter 2:17

Be Cooperative

…if two or three people come together in my name, I am there with them. Matthew 18:19

Be a Peacemaker

We are workers together with God..Do not let the grace that you received from God be for nothing. 2 Corinthians 6:1


Be Forgiving

.if you forgive others for the things they do wrong, then your Father in heaven will also forgive you… Matthew 6:14

Be Happy

Happiness makes a person smile. But sadness breaks a person's spirit. Proverbs 15:13

Be Slow

to Anger

..a foolish person who loses his temper does foolish things. Proverbs 14:7a

Be a Good Listener

…always be willing to listen and slow to speak. James 1:19b

Be Prompt

There is a right time for everything.

Ecclesiastes 3:1

Be Neat and Orderly

Let everything be done in a way that is right and orderly

1 Corinthians: 4:40

We will print out each chart, cut them up and store in baseball card page protectors.

Next I'll print out 6 "medals" for each child and laminate them.

Through out the day, when they practice one of their "Gold Medal Behavior" I will award them with a Gold Medal Badge.

That's a great idea for a behavior chart and even better that you related it to something fun that's going on right now. Creative!! Are they winning gold so far?

I love this system. I've been brainstorming and pushing ideas around in my head, trying to figure out a child-friendly way to encourage my children to demonstrate Godly character. Typically, we have reflected on verses, but it is far easier to use them to correct a "wrong" behavior than to reward "good" behavior. I love this system for that reason ... it is about rewarding their Godly character! I think I will use a modified version of this for my littles. Thanks for the ideas and the method of applying scripture to positive behavior!
