5 Free Printable Practice Sticker Charts
A practice chart/record is a wonderful way to encourage practice time. Kids love to be recognized for their effort, whether it be for specific things like memorizing their scales, or for general things like meeting daily practice goals. Let your child add his/her own sticker each time they achieve their goal. Once your child has met their long term goal, shower them with praise. If that doesn't seem to do the trick, you may have to break out the cookies.
