Teachers, parents, and students struggle with the idea and the practice of homework. As a special educator I have discovered that simple rewards are a tremendous incentive to keep the non-compliant child on task. This article will give some suggestions on how to start an incentive program in your classroom or home to get the homework results that are expected from your student. Rewards, in my experience, have to be tangible, immediate, and something the child truly wants. The goals must be clear and obtainable. For elementary age students, a simple star chart that marks the progress may be sufficient, but there needs to be a tangible reward, something they can see, for them to continue the effort. Though now a bad practice, educators once rewarded children with candy to complete a task. A more healthy and modern approach to short term reward can be an allotted time with a video game or the pick of a favorite television program. If the child likes to read or color, a small book or coloring page can be the reward. The tangible long range goal reward might be a bicycle, a pair of skates, or new shoes. Whatever you think your student would need to urge them to be successful in their education. For the older student the rewards can be as costly or inexpensive as you wish. I once hung a new skateboard in my classroom and told the students whoever turned the most assignments in on time and received a B or higher they would receive the skateboard. With the older students, they had to keep score themselves as the teacher would not give out who was ahead or who was behind. It left some mystery and a little fun in the competition. For short term rewards for older children, internet time, phone time, or a new CD or video game. One strategy is to let them earn one song at a time. For each successful homework session, buy a song from your computer music service and burn it on a CD for them. This will give them something tangible while they build the CD of their choice. Also this will add the special benefit of allowing the parent to monitor what music their child is listening to. To some reward system is a cop out from good parenting and teaching. These opinions are respected, but for some children the organization skills and time management skills are not fully developed and they need to be prompted to mature these abilities. The main objective of the reward system is to give the student something to work for. We as adults do not work for free, why then should we expect are students to. The long term benefit of a good education is not in the sight of some of our youth. As with all of us, that comes with maturity and age. The reward system is just to get the students to this point of insight.

Angels’ Glow will eliminate unsightly tear stains from within. Other products that are topical require high maintenance and will only remove the stains temporarily causing them to come back many times worse than before. Just sprinkle Angels’ Glow daily on regular food. After 3 months, reduce to 4 times a week. After 6 months, reduce further to twice a week.  Puppies (up to 3 months): 1/8 tsp. daily  Dogs 8 to 12 lbs: 3/4 tsp. daily  Dogs 2 to 5 lbs: 1/4 tsp. daily  Dogs 12 lbs & up: 1 tsp. daily  Dogs 5 to 8 lbs: 1/2 tsp. daily Each 30 gr. bottle contains approximately 108 dosages of 1/8 of a tsp, 54 dosages of ¼ of a tsp, 27 dosages of ½ a tsp., 18 dosages of ¾ tsp, or 13.5 dosages of 1 tsp. Each 120 gr. bottle has approximately 432 dosages of 1/8 of a tsp, 216 dosages of ¼ of a tsp, 108 dosages of ½ a tsp, 72 dosages of ¾ tsp, or 54 dosages of 1 tsp. As you keep trimming the stained areas, the newly grown coat will be totally clear. The growth pattern of your dog’s coat will determine if it will be completely tear stains free anywhere from 15 to 40 days. Angels’ Glow is very palatable but in rare cases, dogs and cats may resent changes in their food and will not eat enough. If this happens, we suggest reducing the daily dosage to 1/16 of a teaspoon or even a tiny pinch. You can add Angels Glow to a small portion of Nutri-Cal, cottage cheese, Gerber Baby Food Stage 2 (any meat flavor), cooked ground beef or chicken, or your dogs favorite treat. Give it once a day as a separate snack. Slightly increase the dosage every few days until you reach the prescribed amount according to your dogs weight. Angels’ Glow is safe during pregnancy and for puppies over 6 weeks old.

Someone could tell that a fireplace bellows England from its ‘coat of arms’ or crest engraved on the wood panels of the bellows. Sometimes there are other intricate details that give away the origin of the fireplace bellows such as a nautical, ship or maritime theme.

 

Fireplace bellows England are made similarly to other bellows from around the world in that they have two pieces of flat wood that are usually decorated, carved or embellished with a symbol or design that signifies it’s origin; there is a ‘bladder’ or the part where the air is stored and then released and the (usually) brass values in which the air is forced out of and onto the fire. Sometimes the two pieces of wood are held together with a thin piece of leather and the bladder is adorned with brass nails or ‘buttons’ for more of a decorative look. And of course there are the two long handles to help open and close the ‘bladder’ which helps to suck the air into and out of the ‘bag-like’ portion before it is forced into the fire.

 

Fireplace bellows England were not the first to use fireplace bellows. Fireplaces in parlors around Paris, the United States and Australia were also known to have fireplace bellows among their accessories.
