Spark Student Motivation Saturdays

Today I'm linking up with Head Over Heels for Teaching for Spark Student Motivation Saturdays. 

One thing that I'm using to motivate my students this year are incentive charts. Luckily I've found charts that match my theme. I'm not using them for behavior though. We all know that sometimes students don't like doing homework or just don't want to do it. So I'm using my incentive charts to help motivate them with that. 

Every day that my students do all of their homework, they'll get a sticker on one of the little yellow dots on the chart. Then, when they fill up all the dots they'll get a homework pass.

I've used this method in the past, and it's helped immensely to cut down on missing assignments. And, in case you were wondering, the passes were ones I designed as business cards on VistaPrint when I was able to get the 250 business cards for free, so its also a very inexpensive motivator as well which is always a bonus.

What do you all do to help motivate your kiddos? Be sure to check out all the other great links for tips and comment below and let me know if you have any yourself!


  1. I LOVE your homework pass! This is very motivating Stephanie, especially those students who are reluctant to complete or turn in their homework! Thanks for linking up!
