Reading Incentive

We have used AR on our campus for a long time.  We just found out that our campus will no longer have AR, and I knew that I needed to come up with a new reading incentive for my students.  I wanted something fairly simple, so this is what I've come up with.  If they read a book, and complete a book blurb page, then they will get a buck.  I plan to run the different dollar amounts on different colored construction paper.  The goal will be for them to earn at least ten dollars per six weeks.
I was thinking if they earn $10 during the six weeks, then they'll get to eat lunch with me in the classroom at the end of the six weeks.  If they earn $20, then they can sit with a buddy during lunch.  I'm still brainstorming ideas.  If you have a good idea, please share.

You can purchase this packet in my Teacher Pay Teachers store.

  3. Just downloaded, thanks. This is great!

  4. I was just reading another blog (sorry, I've read so many I don't know which one it was), but she had other incentives in her class that they can "rent". A cool chair for their desk for the day, a special pen to use to write with, lesson in your socks (everyone can take off their shoes for that lesson only), etc. Cool stuff that's free and easy to do, but oh-so-much-fun for the kids!

  5. Love these ideas!!! Especially having a cool chair for the day. I'm going to have to be on the look-out for a fancy chair this summer.
