Today I planned a system to motivate students to do their homework in 6th grade language arts. Orignally I had planned to give each student a card printed on cardstock and punch a hole each time they turned in a homework assignment. I thought about it and realized that would be time consuming. So I ordered barcode stickers and have decided that each time a student hands in an assignment, I will place one of the stickers on the upper right hand corner. After they complete 30 homeworks the students can cut out the barcode stickers and hand them to me for some type of reward. I hope that this will get them to complete assignments and keep their papers. I am trying to decide on what type of reward. I am trying to make this like when you cut out proof of purchases to receive something in return.
