Rewards and Incentives



Learn successful strategies for rewarding and praising children, as well as potential problems and pitfalls involved, as eight teachers from primary schools across the UK discuss in this pedagogy resource for KS1/2 teachers.

They address how to use stickers, house points, buttons and marbles to reward pupils. Consistency is the key and they address exactly what this means and how to make pupils understand and learn.

The teachers explain that the key to a successful reward is the praise that accompanies it, and they discuss rewards that simply don't work for certain children.

They also look at how reward systems can go wrong, offering practical ideas and tips for getting the best out of pupils.
