Students are all assigned to a specific "House." There are four houses: Red, Blue, Green and Gold. Students can earn House Points during class time as an incentive or reward.
Some classrooms keep track of House Points using a peg board and others post the points in the classroom. When students keep track of their points, they are participating in a real-world example of numeral fluency.
Students also earn points by dressing up on special days. Calculation of house points is tabulated and posted in the school.
