My daughter will be teaching one of the lower grades this year. She hasn't been told which one yet. My question is, can you use this concept as a group instead of a single child? The theme for the year is monkeys. We were thinking of putting a cloth banana tree in the corner of the room with stuffed fabric bananas connected to a stem with velcro. When a child performs a bucket filling act, he can remove a banana from the bunch and place it in a community bucket. When the bucket is full the children will have earned a specific reward. We are new to this idea and are researching ideas, but so far have only seen individual buckets. We are hoping someone will enlighten us on how this might work for a group.
