Back to School Performance Incentives: A Modern Take on The Proverbial Gold Star

It's that time again. We're winding down from a summer that seems to go by way too fast -and settling in to routine once again. If you're a teacher or school administrator, you've, no doubt, got your mind on a million different objectives. One of which might be how and what you'll use as this year's back to school performance incentives.

What's in Your Toolbox?

Remember the proverbial gold star you got on your own school assignments? I can still see the shimmering stars on my early grade school papers that rewarded a job well done and the resulting pride I felt. Its purpose, of course, was to incentivize repeat performance, which actually did inspire the diligence required to achieve that special recognition over and over again.

In today's fast paced, modern age, however, gold stars as a way of recognition, have all but gone by the wayside. Never-the-less, the idea is still timeless: using back to school performance incentives can, and do inspire kids to go the extra mile. Gold stars today? They may not rock a kid's world. Aspiring to attain, maybe, a collection of really cool custom stickers? We think so!

Who Can Deny? Kids LOVE Custom Stickers!

If you're looking for ways to inspire your students, there's no better way than with custom stickers. And, the possibilities are only as limited as your imagination! Think about it! Custom Stickers can be centered around a specific theme, such as planets and space, or iconic historical figures or landmarks to name a few. Custom stickers are also a great way to allow your students to display their ongoing level of achievement over new concepts.

I remember being in Girl Scouts as a young girl and aspiring to gain the badges that I'd proudly wear on my Girl Scout sash. Every new skill gained was proudly displayed for all my peers to see. That badge alone acted like a magical incentive, inspiring the discipline I needed to achieve my goal!
Gold stars and badges? They are of a different era. But the concept is the same: Back to School Performance Incentives will always be a timeless and magical tool in the most inspired teacher's toolbox.
