For this weeks sparking student motivation, I have taken something I received from our wonderful hostess, Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching, and made it work for my kids.
We had our first major test. I had several students make a 100! I wanted to reward them. So with Joanne's "smarty pants" rewards, I created the "Smarty Pants Club". Students signed a card and received a Smarties candy! Then I posted this behind my desk, which is the only blank wall space I have in my room!!!
My students informed me that they like Nerds candy a lot, so I need a "Nerdy Club" too. Silly kids!
Good thing candy is everywhere right now so I can pick some up for them.
