Dear Colleagues,

I love Larry's idea for making a student the "cleaning supervisor."
However, since I teach elementary,
and I only see students once a week for 40 min., I would not have the
student use all his/her class
time for this task. The reason I'm writing, though, is I'd like to know if
any of you have ideas for what
to give students to reward them if they do their job really well.
Unfortunately, students seem to work a
bit harder for extrinsic rewards at this age. I'd like to think of
something free that is not time consuming.

Thanks in advance, Leah
