West Linn Kumon Center Rewards
Our Award and Rewards Philosophy
Graded and corrected Kumon work is expected each day for a successful program. The learning and growth you get from your work is an intrinsic reward! But sometimes we all need a little extra motivation, and that is where extrinsic motivation comes into play. Our Center values rewards for good work. Sometimes, external motivation can mean the difference between drudgery and excitement, and we work to create the latter when possible!
Kumon Dollars for Primary Instruction and Independent Students
We pay “Kumon Dollars” for completed packets after we record them in your score book. Completed work includes:
- Start time
- Neat work
- End time
- Corrected to 100%
1 complete assignment = $1
Extra $3 for a week of work and no missed assignments
When Gaby did her complete Kumon work all week, she earned: $7 plus $3 = $10
When Gaby missed 1 day of work and didn’t complete 1 assignment: $5 plus $0= $5
When Gaby brought back her complete Kumon Math and Reading work for every day of one week: $10 plus $10= $20
Passport to Success!
Passports: Extra credit for class attendance
We love seeing our students twice a week! Class time allows us to prepare work that is customized to each student’s needs for that week. Though sometimes it may be difficult to get your student to class, we will be rewarding our students extra credit for each class they attend. For every complete passport page, $35 extra Kumon Dollars will be rewarded.
