Religious Incentives

Do you use incentives or rewards in your class or homeschool? There are several ways that you can reward kids for doing such as behavior, completing homework, memorizing verses, or other things.

 

In my religious education class (CCD), I use Bible Bucks.  These come in the same amounts that our currency comes in, with a couple extras.  Students can earn Bible Bucks for returning their folder to class each week, doing homework, and other such matters.  Usually about every 3 weeks I let the kids shop in the Gospel Store.

Most of the items in the Gospel Store are things that I purchase at Wal-Mart or Dollar Tree.  I try to find toys and items related to the Bible.  I’ve had items like small stuffed animals such as a whle for Jonah and the Whale or Bible story books.  I price the items for sale by size and the biggest is no more than 5 Bible Bucks and the smallest would be 1 Bible Buck.  I store the pieces in containers that I get at Dollar Tree and tag each bin with the price of that the objects in that bin.

Oriental Trading also has lot of sets of small Chrisitan toys and novelties.  These not only work great in the Gospel Store, but they’re also perfect for the Treasure Chest.

Incentives are a fantastic tool in the classroom or at home to reward the kids.  It encourages them to keep working hard and to be responsible.  It’s always fun to watch them shop in the Gospel Store and in my class, they love to keep up with how many Bible Bucks that they’ve saved.

If you’d like to use the Bible Bucks that I’ve made, please click the image below for more information or just add them to your cart.  Only the bundle is shown below, but it’s a saving of 20% off the individual sets (color/bw)!

Treasured Points

I’m excited to tell you all about a new program that I’ve implemented at The Treasured Schoolhouse Shop.  It’s a new points rewards program where you earn points for each purchase and other processes.

Here’s an example of what you’ll see now with each printable….

It will show how many points you’ll earn if you purchase the item.  As you can see, we round it up, so in this case it’s a $2.50 item and you’ll receive 3 points.  During a sale, you’ll earn points for the regular price of the materials, and not the sale price.  

Other ways that you can earn points are by opening an account with The Treasured Schoolhouse Shop.  That earns 5 points.  You can also earn 2 Treasured Points for each feedback that you leave on printables that you purchase.

When you’re ready to use your Treasured Points, you can redeem them during the checkout process.  When redeeming them, they have a value of 15 Treasured Points is equal to $1.  That means if you have 30 Treasured Points and are purchasing a $4 item, your 30 points will take $2 off the amount in the shopping cart.

The best part is that you can use your Treasured Points on your next purchase, or you can save them until you’re ready to use them.  The points never expire!

If you’d like to learn more about Treasured Points, please click here.  If there’s a question or comment that you have, please leave a comment on that page and I’ll reply right away!
