SUNDAY AND WEEKLY ITEMS INCENTIVE: - -
To encourage our YW to bring all of their
books for Sunday, we bought plain tote bags (1.00 each at Wal-mart). We
give them to the girls and tell them they have 6 months to decorate the
bag in whatever way they want. We also give them a list of things that
the bag must contain: 1) Scriptures; 2) Personal
Progress Book; 3)
Journal (the one that matches the Personal Progress Book); 4)
(given by us to keep a record of all their PP accomplishments);
calendar (we give them a monthly calendar where all our activities are
listed); and 5) a pen or pencil.
Wednesday & Sunday when we take attendance, we ask the girls what
in the list above they have with them. They receive 2 points each
scriptures and PP book; 1 point for everything else listed (total of 10
points each week). We made a poster with dates down the left side
& a column at the top with each of the girls names. If
they receive all 10 points they get a sticker. If it is
less, we write the number of points received. At the end of each
month, the girl with the most points gets to pick a small gift from a
gift box. At the end of a year, the young woman with the
most points will receive a special gift. (we are thinking a gift
card, around $50).In addition to the points listed above the
girls can achieve extra points by giving a talk or doing something
extra for young women's or a Wednesday activity. So far, our beehives
have been the winning group. The first month we did it
(November) our top three in points were all beehives.
Shelly Woods, Texas BABYSITTING RECIPE: -
- GLOOP -- 1 cup glue and 3/4 cut liquid starch. Blend the two
At first the starch does not want to incorporate. Keep stirring
or pull the gloop into a ball and knead until all the extra
is gone. This mixture is great. It will stretch,
and make popping noises. My preschool class can't get enough of
it. 1916 BEEHIVE REQUIREMENTS: - (from the "Juvenile
