This past week my focus was shifted to my older son who came down with chicken pox. Being confined at home, it was the perfect opportunity to get started on the learning reward tracker I have been thinking about.
Simple motivational reward tracker
Going to kindergarten next year means he has to take reading and writing seriously. It is often an arduous task getting this active toddler to sit still, let alone do some writing. I have been scratching my head over how to motivate him, especially to take an interest in learning Mandarin words. Thought I would give this reward tracker a try and it worked!
Loosely translated the title is ‘Jun Xuan’s Chinese words learning tracker’.
I drew a grid with 7 by 5 boxes. To include him in this process I let him decide what rewards he wanted for every 5 completed worksheets (or words learnt). Then he got to colour in the reward items. He got straight down to work on earning those stickers! He completed the tenth one while waiting for our doctor to certify him pox free, and was rewarded with a well deserved ice cream 🙂
