A lot of us use this awesome site, myself included. I didn't start it until after Christmas Break but I plan to use it all next year.
I reset my points daily. Kids write down their daily score on a parent sheet, alongside their homework assignments.
I correlated their points to a 'color,' so it looks something like this (I don't have the sheet with me, but this is close:
-5 or more = red
-3 to -4 = orange
-1 to -2 = yellow
0 = green
+1 to +2 = blue
+3 to +4 = purple
+5 or more = silver
Next year I'd like to keep the points running all year...or maybe per quarter...or maybe per semester...I don't know!!
I'm leaning towards all year. Maybe starting "Dojo Clubs" kids earn their way into, starting at 25 points, 50 points, 75 points, up to ??? points. Kids would earn prizes/certificates for making their way into each club. I'd have a Dojo Wall I'd update each quarter.
Just wondering what everyone else has tried.
