I wanted good ideas on how to reward a good report card for my 6 year old son. He is getting letter grades and I know you can give so much for every A, but I wanted other ideas too. Please give suggestons.

Try to avoid food rewards, It will have a devastating psycological effect with your child's relationship with food - try something like a sticker chart - one that possible leads up to a bigger reward, like going swimming, or hosting a slumber party

I think money is not a good reward, neither is material objects. Kids tend to expect something for doing something well instead of doing it because they should try and do well anyway. I think doing things with the family as a treat is a good idea. For example, if they get an over all good report card, take everyone out for ice cream. It is cheaper than say, $5 for every "A" and cheaper than most toys and it is something nice the whole family can do together. Other good rewards would be that they get to pick a movie to rent or they get to pick what everyone will have for dinner, or where to go on the next family outing. =]

Boy! With a 6 yr old that's not easy! We have a spot on the wall by the front door, (not pretty, but they love it!) where after I go through their backpack after school all their A+ work goes up. I make sure I point it out in front of them to everyone who comes along. That keeps the attention to good work constantly in mind, while not putting too much pressure on. And they all know that if their report card comes home and there is only A's on it they get to go to Chucky Cheese and spend 5-10$ doing what they want. My daughter has ADHD and ODD and it has brought her grades up immensely. ( I also have rewards for other grades.)

i would say keep it cheap, take him to the dollar store and let him pick something new out.

Take him to the bookstore and let him pick out some new books. Or at bedtime, read him an extra story or two for the good work. If you keep it educational it may help keep him interested in school.

Since My Step Daughters Dont Live With Us, We Have Them Part Time, We Dont See Their Report Cards.
But When They Clean Their Room or Help Me Clean Without Me Having To Put Up A Fight With Them, I Give Them Some Change To Put In Their Piggy Banks.
The Other Day When The Cleaned Their Whole Room, Helped Me Wash Their Sheets and They Helped Me Dinner I Gave Them 50 Cents To Put In Their Banks.
