Love this idea!!! Use these FREE highlighter labels to help students keep organized and engaged while close reading! Also terrific for test prep for older grades. Each label has an I CAN statement to keep your good readers focused on the task at hand.
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! AWESOME :) .....I like this uses parent praise as the rewards, and recognized academic achievements.
