That's when I decided to use my new Twistable Crayola Crayons and Colored Pencils! I created two NEW pencil boxes that contain a mechanical pencil, glue stick, eraser, scissors, and twistable crayons and colored pencils. How do the kiddos get to USE these special boxes? They have to earn it through producing NICE and NEAT work! The "My Work Rocks!" BOX will be theirs to use for one day, along with a little award to take home and share with their parents. I am guessing that their friends at the table will be "jealous" enough to try and earn the box for themselves.
I will let you know if it works! I am hoping this new incentive will have my kiddos producing beautiful work - ready for their next step - FIRST GRADE! What do you think?
