Our students struggle with intrinsic motivation to engage in their education. They sometimes need a reason to do the right thing and that's where our MataSTORE comes in. Students earn points to spend in the store each day. The amount of points they earn is completely dependent on their choices and actions. Positive interactions, responsible behavior, good citizenship, handling emotions productively are what students earn points for. But what good are points if there's nothing to buy?? MataSTORE will be a retail paradise for our students. It will be filled with high value items that students have expressed willingness to work for. Our students have told us what they want such as phone chargers and earbuds to listen to music and increase their ability to focus, adult coloring books to help them relaxed, fidgets to keep their hands busy during lectures and Bluetooth speakers: a luxury item that will be something worth saving up for. MataSTORE will be student run with adult support on all levels from managing purchases, maintaining inventory, identifying and securing recurring funding sources and overseeing daily store operations.
