How to get students to do almost anything!

Candy, stickers and promises of free time are my favourite incentives.  You can get students to do almost anything with Jolly Ranchers and a promise of five minutes free time.

I use incentives to get students to sit down quietly, to do their work, to clean the room at the end of the day or anything else I would like them to do.  You don’t have to give incentives to the entire class – just one or two students and the whole class will do what you’re asking, if there’s a promise that just one more student will get something at the end.
