Today's Get it Done! idea is another summer plan by the talented Stacy Julian. This time she used a tickets system to motivate her children to "get it done!" They earned a set amount of tickets for certain "jobs" and then were able to redeem them for sleep overs, going to a movie, etc. And she even added a way for them to use their tickets to "upgrade" their school clothes. LOVE that aspect. In fact, you'll be hearing some more about a little "school clothes" twist later this week.
I've done a ticket type system in my classroom before where the students earned tickets for activities throughout the week. One year I let them use the tickets to buy things from the class "store" and another year they were entries into a weekly drawing for picking out of the treasure chest.
