Do you like these coins?
Click on the picture to go to Oriental Trading Company to get some for yourself!
My students can earn these in many ways...good behavior... classroom jobs...and for completing some voluntary extra at-home study!
One way my students can earn extra coins is through completing math fact practice at home through the Math Stars program.
Students can earn one coin for twenty minutes of math fact practice (flashcards, math app on an iPad/Phone/Pod, online practice, or timed-tests packet) on Monday through Thursday and two coins for practice on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
Another way to earn extra coins is through Read to Succeed.
I require my students to read 20 minutes as part of homework on Monday through Thursday. But, I will reward students who read beyond that time. Like Math Stars, students can earn one coin for an additional 20 minutes on Monday through Thursday. They can also earn two coins for reading at least 20 minutes on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
My students rack up the coins with these two programs. But so can you! Surprise!
Below you will find copies of these bookmarks in color and black and white.
You can use my rules or set up your own...but having a reward of some sort will cause more students to want to participate!
What incentives do you provide your students? I would love to hear about them!
