My kinder girl has a reading goal from our umbrella school to read independently 300 minutes a month. The prize? A Pizza Hut personal pan pizza. Would this be motivating to me? Yes. The cheesy goodness would be enough. For little girl with no concept of the word free? Nuh-uh.
Did I get tired of
The sticker chart! Each sticker is worth 10 minutes of reading time. Now we can both easily see the progress and it has been a big help, especially if we are getting behind. I have seen her take a stack of books and read on her own for 40 minutes to finish a row (I give her a small reward at the end of each row).
Sometimes it's the simple things that help us to stick to it!
