The End of The First Grade
School is winding down once again and we're getting ready for summer. As things finish up one of the big tasks facing Sunnyside is getting all the library books returned. How are they getting the kids to look under their beds and return the missing books? By promising them a bead! That's right, a single "magic" bead. I'm not sure how far up the grade levels this enticing incentive went (maybe sixth graders get two beads) but it worked on our kiddo who reminded us for days to get the books located so he could claim his prize. I kind of feel like a sucker for giving him $3 a week for chores that don't get done.
