Here is a great idea to make your students bring in their homework on time.
Start by talking to your students about their responibilities in school; one responibility they have is to bring their homework on time. On a big sheet of paper, write RESPONSIBILITY in large letters.
For every day that all your students have brought all their homework on time, colour in the R (the beginning letter of RESPONSIBILITY). The next time, colour in the E (the second letter) and so on...
Finally all the 14 letters in the word are coloured. Then it's time to give your students the treat, which you have agreed on earlier; sweets, a classroom party, a field trip etc.
