I'm bribing my kids to get good grades.
This is the first year they will both will get actual letter grades instead of the annoying O, S+, S, or N. Since my older son is getting up there in age (5th grade) and was showing some lazy tendencies toward the end of the last school year, I decided it was time to sweeten the deal a bit.
I did some searching on the internet for some ideas and this is what I came up with:
Son # 2 came home from school the other day with 3 graded tests. 105 on Spelling, 95 on Reading Comprehension, and an 88 on a Grammar test and he thought he was going to score $25. Umm, no son, $10 for each A on your REPORT CARD.
