CHOIR CASH! Fun Extrinsic Motivators for Choir *3 Sizes, 5 Choral Composers*
Kodály Cash can make wonderful extrinsic motivators to encourage students to practice and can significantly help students in overcoming some of the beginning music theory hurdles by providing a little extra motivation. Just print, cut out and distribute! You can hand them out when students accomplish goals, come to class prepared, demonstrate outstanding leadership, or anything else that deserves recognition. Students also love the competitive element and will work hard to become wealthy with Kodály Cash!

Select the page with the Kodály Cash of the desired size and print in color or B&W. If you’re going to make double-sided copies (which looks great, as having the image on both sides makes the Kodály Cash look even more like an authentic dollar bill!) it works best in my experience to print out two single-sided copies, then use the 1 —> 2 function to scan/print. You may then use a paper cutter to trim edges, with up to five pages at a time, depending on the quality of the paper cutter.
You can develop your own unique uses for Kodály Cash, which might include rewarding students for learning/memorizing music, demonstrating good behavior and leadership, being helpful, coming to class prepared, etc. I like to inform them which actions will earn them Kodály Cash, which provides them with specific goals.
I recommend building up a “Kodály Store” or “Solfege Store” with solfege/music theory supplies and fun items including pencils, erasers, binders, laminate sleeves, stickers, etc. Music in Motion (catalog) is a great source for building up a solfege store with incentivizing items such as the ones referenced above. You can decide how much each store item is worth based on how generous you are with the Kodály Cash and how much funding you have available to stock up your store. Enjoy!
