    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 :)
