Lots of us remember getting a piece of candy for doing a good job when we were in school. There was something so fun about receiving a little chocolate or gummi bear for a hard day’s work in elementary school. So, how can candy help keep kid’s enjoying the learning process? Let’s take a look in today’s blog!
Positive rewards have been proven to help.
Keeping kids on track can be a difficult task. They just want to go outside and have fun! However, when you offer them a piece of candy for their efforts, they may be more inclined to work towards a goal. This will help to teach them about the value of hard work. It can also teach them about the power of discipline. If they can stay on task, then they can have a reward, and a sweet one at that. This is going to help children develop useful life skills that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Not only that, but giving out candy in a classroom is a lot of fun for everyone involved!
Which kinds of candy rewards should you provide?
There are so many different kinds of candy rewards that you can give out, but which is going to serve you best? The best tactic here is to have a little variety. Kids are going to work for candies that they like, and kids can be picky sometimes. You should also be careful with goodies with peanuts in them as many children have peanut allergies. If you do choose to have peanuts in your candy stash, make sure to keep them separate from the rest of the batch to avoid cross-contamination. You should also choose smaller candies so that you can provide a reward without going overboard.
