What are "grabbers"?

I figured that someone would ask about those. My sixth grade teacher would hand out awards throughout the school year for good grades, etc. They were basically tickets or chits, or whatever, and two or three times in the year, we could trade them in for little toys. I have no idea why he called the chits "grabbers", but I suspect it's because we kids wanted to grab as many as we could.
