In our class, one of the most anticipated activities each week is Homeworkopoly, which you can learn more about at teachnet.com. This is the only reward/incentive system I use in class. This summer, I adapted the gameboard to meet the needs of my class and to match our room. There are two files if you are interested...
How to Play:
- Each student who has completed all homework assignments for the week gets one turn.
- If a student lands on "Chance" or "Computer Card", they will get the prize shown on that card (see below for prizes).
- If a student lands on "Spelling Question" or "Math Question", they must answer a review question (this is the part the teacher loves!!)
I found these really great business card holders on Amazon this summer. I hot glued them to the bulletin and board to hold the game cards.
- Use a pen all day
- Choose a book for the classroom library from the next book order
- Homework Pass
Though we are well into the school year, Homeworkopoly is still a big hit every week!
