My studio semester begins next week – so many little things left to prepare before the first student arrives! One of my projects this summer was beginning a point system (based off Spring’s post here) to reward practice but keeping track of points in student notebooks wasn’t my favorite way to do it. As I shopped online, I kept thinking “This one was nice but a bit cheesy for my older students… That one really isn’t pretty enough…” Finally, I thought “How hard would it be to make my own versions and print a few for students to choose from?”
So ta-da! Today I am sharing my three versions of incentive charts with you. Below are the pdf files to download. As I prepped for my students, I decided to print them with two to a page so I could cut them out and laminate them. I’ll let students choose from the three options and we may use a Sharpie pen to mark stars rather than stickers. Hope you enjoy using these with your students as well! I tried to make them work for any music studio – piano or any other instrument.
Whitney Hawker, NCTM, teaches group and private piano at Weber State University, Utah. She loves surprising students with the perfect piece or a new exciting game! After graduate school, she missed sharing ideas and resources daily with colleagues so she and her friend, Spring, began blogging together at 4DPianoTeaching.com
please add me to your blog list…………I enjoy and appreciate your ideas.
