Sparking Student Motivation- Smarty Pants Club

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.

  1. How cute is that? I give out smarties when someone says something especially smart, Starbursts for super star behavior, and Tootsie Rolls for when someone's on a roll, but I love the Smartie Club!

  2. Love it Elizabeth! I've been passing them out and attaching them to papers, but I like the club idea! Are their names on the photos? Thanks for the shout out and the extension of the idea-perfect! Thanks for sharing and linking up!
