This is a super simple practice incentive that I use with my young students. I find anything food themed tends to go down a treat! 😉
These incentive sheets can be used for anything you want. I tend to use them to reward written homework but you could als0 use them for pieces completed, scale practice, etc.
Most of my kids don’t have a problem practicing their pieces but they sometimes forget about their theory sheets and exercises. For every sheet they complete they get one “scoop” of ice-cream, which is a circular sticker. Their favourite part is always choosing the “flavour”!
There are two ice-cream incentive sheets on every A4 so you will need to cut it down the middle. I did them this size so I could tape them inside the front of the kids’ practice notebooks.
Enjoy your ice-cream and let me know if you have any questions or comments below!
