Marble Jar is an easy-to-use app that bridges education and fun by empowering families to meaningfully collaborate with their children. It breaks everyday tasks into small, achievable steps for families to track progress, instill confidence, and recognize a child’s accomplishment. I love that it eliminates counterproductive negotiations yet reinforces independence and responsibility.
Just like the real marble jar in our classrooms of years past, the Marble Jar app allows parents to add marbles every time the child practices a positive routine until the jar is full and the celebration is unlocked.
It’s easy to customize a jar with a picture and assign any goal or expectation. A goal may include simple routines like earning a later bedtime, or larger expectations such as taking responsibility for a given task or learning manners. With each positive routine accomplished, a marble is earned, allowing parents and children to recognize improvements, and achieve long term personal growth.
It’s a great app for back-to-school routines that you are trying to reinforce and for the many other behaviors that would benefit from positive rewards.
Marble Jar is $2.99 from the iTunes Store but is currently FREE as part of a back to school special!
