An update, sorry that it has been so long since I've been on here. Anyways, my prize box / ticket system has given me a benefit of 25 of my students out of 26 passing the STAR (State Standardized Test) Practice Test. 11 of the students were commended (missed 2 or less questions out of 46). I've added some ticket fines to curb late / no homework turned in and no names on papers. I only have had a few that have not been able to go to the store because they are too far behind that they might not ever catch up. I am probably going to give another chance at some extra credit to get him out of the hole. Some of my kids wanted to pay the ticket fines of some other kids so that they wouldn't be in the negative. I asked them at least 3 times if they were sure, and I had a multitude of kids wanting to pay the other kids ticket fines. So I let them, the next day the same child forgot to turn in his homework and once again was fined. They haven't wanted to pay another kid's fine since. So maybe a long term lesson learned there.
