    when students participate when no one else is or answer a challenging question they can get 'smart beads' to wear. they trade in smart beads at the end of the day for a little note that goes home to their parents! Gonna try something similar with my daycare kids.

AWESOME :) .....I like how this uses parent praise as the rewards, and recognized academic achievements. Also use for good decision,asking and classroom management.

    Positive reinforcement goes a long way! I'd change this to a behavior management tool...."Behavior Beads" Great behavior=beads which they can turn in for YDollars :)

A case for cursive: Recent research from Indiana University found that writing by hand activates areas of the brain that don’t get tapped during typing. Another study, conducted by the University of Washington, revealed that when elementary-school students composed essays on paper rather than on-screen, they wrote more and faster.
