This topic began with a question about awarding points and recognizing attendance. We have since expanded it to include related Sunday School "awards" and recognition (should we, how).
There was a time in Sunday School when awards, pins, and other forms of recognition were in vogue. As you will will read, many have tried some sort of reward system, and out of it has come some pretty good alternatives!
Has anyone had experience with designing Sunday School so that the kids can achieve points and levels, badges and recognition --as they attend and participate? I have been kicking this around for a while. Our kids are used to video games and ipad learning apps that give tokens and points to "unlock" levels, etc.
I'm thinking of trying something in June and July with a smaller group of kids before we start up big in August. I've heard of this being done in Sunday Schools and public schools, so many ways to go with it.
Thanks and take care,
