practice Incentive

This is not an original idea.  I found it on another blog, but cannot remember where so if you have come across it, please let me know so I can give credit to whom credit is due.  My students each have a jar on the piano.  As they practice they can fill it with pom poms.   Of course there are certain criteria they must meet in order to earn pom poms.  Below are some things they can do. 

Fill out your practice time. 
4 days = 1 pom-pom
5 days = 2 pom-poms
6 days = 3 pom-poms

Memorize a designated song
 receive 3 pom-poms

Play your finger patterns perfect
 receive 2 pom-poms

Completed theory done during the week,
not on the way to lesson, earns 2 pom-poms

Win a Grab Bag Prize
25 pom-poms in your jar earns a grab bag

 This week Jared, memorized three songs. WOW!  He just about filled his jar already!
