I've been waiting to blog about the new Studio Incentive for a while. Now we've completed the first full week of lessons, and everyone is happy with this new idea. I purchased 1 pint jelly jars from Walmart to be containers for the Jelly Belly Incentive at a cost of less than $1/jar. Jelly Bellys were slightly more expensive! I've stopped focusing on practice time and am really pushing meeting weekly goals with each piece. Goals are listed on the students' new assignment sheet and are numbered 1 through 10. For each goal reached the student will put 5 Jelly Bellys of their choice in their jar. There is no contest here, just a visual way of seeing their work each week make a difference. It is similar to my last year's incentive of pony beads on practice chains.
