TAGteach Reinforcers for Toddlers and Preschoolers

We are sometimes asked if TAGteach works with toddlers and preschoolers. Well of course it does! Sometimes very young children just like the sound of the tag and that fact that their actions can make it happen. It is a fun game that gives them control. Sometimes something more tangible is required. Here is a list of some possible reinforcers for toddlers and preschoolers:

  • Stickers - to put on a chart, on their hand, on their clothes
  • Bubbles (child blows, or you blow and child breaks)
  • Using Crayola stamping markers - on their hands, feet or on a chart
  • A piece of a puzzle to build later when all the pieces are collected
  • Opening a drawer or window of a special prize chest - as with advent calendar - to see a new picture or get a small prize
  • Giving the dog/cat/bird/fish a treat
  • Pushing buttons - cell phone, remote control etc
  • Putting drops of food colour in a clear glass of water to watch the swirls
  • Planting seeds in little pots
  • Clicking a clicker
  • Adding a Duplo (or Lego) block to a tower
  • Knocking down any kind of tower
  • Adding something to a driveway chalk picture
  • "Painting" with water on the deck or patio
  • Making noise with any kind of noisemaker
