After getting over the shock of feeling like the summer is flying past, I spent some time looking at what was available. I came across the individual reward sheets pictured here. And, I felt like they were perfect for my piano students.
I'm planning on have one sheet for each student, and when he accomplishes his weekly goal of practice time, he'll get a sticker. Once he has filled his entire sheet, he'll be able to pick out a prize. Guess I'll have to make a trip to the dollar store to stock up!
I like the fact that each student will be able to move at his own pace - some of my students are not very faithful in practicing. However, it will still give each one incentive and a goal to work towards.
Question for you: Do you reward your students for their practice? If so, how? If not, why not?
