I use Accelerated Reader in my classroom and I LOVE it! One way I acknowledge my kiddo's accomplishments and reward them for passing A.R. tests (besides the A.R. store at our library) is to give each student a "leaf" for our A.R. tree each time they pass a test. Each month I pick a different themed "leaf" for the tree. For example, in February we used hearts to fill up our tree. In March, we used shamrocks. You get the idea... Below is picture of the tree without leaves and then one tree as we filled it up. It's amazing how motivating it is for the kiddos to put a leaf on the tree. I love the smiles and joy it brings them!
