I needed a way to motivate my kids to read this year! Our school uses Accelerated Reader, which can be motivating, but my kids have never responded particularly well to it. I had to get something new!
I made AR Punch Cards for my kids. As they earn their points they earn a punch. When they fill-up their cards, they get to "retire" them. We have a hook where we hang our cards. It is right next to our AR Data Wall.
For every card they fill, they receive a small prize. My prizes range from choosing partners to lunch in the room with the teacher. You can do whatever works for you!
