Re: Incentives

Your suggestions are so helpful. I'm fixing to go get em!
I think I'll start off with the tickets as that would fit for us right now and see how it goes from there.

This past August I was so discouraged and sure we would have to start all over with First Grade; he still couldn't remember long and short vowels.
