It is called Smart Beads. Whenever a student participates in class, maybe when no one else will, gets a question correct, basically just stands out in making an effort academically you tell them to get a smart bead (I bought mine at the dollar store/ 8 for $1). Then at then end of the day they trade their smart beads in for a smart slip to take home and give to their parents, they can share with them how they earned them. I love this idea because it can boost confidence academically, instead of just focusing on behavior.
