One of my favorite classroom management systems is Vic La Vache, the world traveling cow. To make this system work, I got a stuffed cow and told my students that he had been everywhere, but that he only talked to children. In order to hear his stories, they had to be on their best behavior and earn raffle tickets. Each Friday I would choose a raffle ticket and the winner would take Vic home and write down one of his stories on these Vic La Vache Journal Sheets. For more details on this sytem, and to download these sheets for free, visit my blog - Raki's Rad Resources.
