I have used this plan for more than 15 years in some way or another. At the moment we are using tickets like you purchase at Walmart, however I prefer to use play money instead. In this way I can teach them how to count money and how to exchange it. But we are now changing classes, so the tickets work best right now. I hope it can help anyone that is starting a new year. Rewards are very important. With both rewards and fines the tickets have value and mean more when they are taken than pulling a card. I don't think you will be disappointed if you try it.
