I have a sticker rewards chart for my 7 year old son.
(He started slacking with his handwriting in school, he hated writing so he went from good handwriting to sloppy unreadable) This chart I reward him when he started bringing home papers with good handwriting. There are 20 squares to fill in with stickers. when he fills all of them in he will get 5 dollars. He likes earning money to save so it's a good reward.
For reading: For every minute he reads he can have a minute of video game time. He tries to read for an hour to get an hour of game play. 20-30 minutes of reading is homework from school anyway.
To get my son to do his "duties" without me asking him I bought a white board (erasable) I wrote the days on there. On the left are a list of chores with different colored dots for each chore. Then i put that color of dot on the days he's supposed to do them. Red dot is feed his pet it's on every day. purple is room, 3day
