Incentives Help

Help me give my students some great incentives to read more and gain higher reading levels and comprehension.

My Students

I teach three classes of smart and motivational students! They have the greatest potential! They learn all about the science and history of our world through reading and hands on activities. They love these subjects! It’s so great to see them pumped up during discussions.

Unfortunately, most students are struggling with their reading comprehension this school year.

The only way to get better with this skill is to read more. They need a reason to read more. Reading is a difficult skill to grasp and comprehension is even harder. This is not something most students enjoy to do.

This age student needs a reason to read. They need something that would motivate them to read more. They need a challenge!

My Project

These incentives will give the students a reason to read. I will give out a gift card to Amazon at the end of every nine weeks (one to each class). The student with the highest amount of AR points will receive the gift! Kids love a good challenge! The student at the end of the year with the highest AR points in all three classes will receive a Kindle Fire to keep at home.

Anyone will work hard for a good gift card!

They will be able to use this to purchase anything their heart desires on Amazon. Having a big overall gift will get the students fired up for the challenge. I will also be rewarding the class with the highest amount of AR points a pizza party at the end of the year.
