Sparking Motivation Hodge Podge


Middle Schoolers are H-A-R-D to motivate. 
I feel like sometimes I have to stand on my head and do flips. 
Other times though, the simplest of things will get them working. 

Today I have a hodge podge of things to show that help my students stay focused! 


Sports 
They aren't ALL into sports, but they know I am, so some of them just humored me. 
We predicted Sunday's outcome. 
I did this last year too. 

Guess, we will find out tomorrow....  
(GO HAWKS!)



 Peer Tutoring 
The student on the right is tutoring on the right. 
She is UH-Mazing. Seriously... She "teaches" them and then says, "Do you understand?" 
Hello? She checks for understanding??!!!! 
Another student yesterday said, "Mrs. Hodges, Genesis could be your substitute" 
Yes, she could! 

 They love listening to music while they work. I am fine with it as long as they have headphones. (they can only do this during independent work time) 


 Math Apps on their Ipads
This is 5 Dice, a very challenging app. 

This is Door 24. They LOVE this one. 

Cooperative groups 
During Daily 3, one of the stations is Math with Someone. 
My students are really good at completing their work and using a lot of "Math Talk" 


My boys do it too! 

Coloring 
They loved this activity from Middle School Math Moments. 
This was one we completed when practicing exponents. 



Hope you enjoyed seeing what I use, a whole bag of tricks!!

  1. For men also have the right to stand out and to be stylish. Today lots of rolex replica uk are targeted at men, no matter which style or on what occasion they'll use it from such as for show, for sport, formal etc. they would always find suitable hublot replica uk to match the different occasion they want to attend. If you are tag heuer replica is not an issue when you want to buy a timepiece then you could always buy one of the designer rolex replica sale but if you only have limited budget in your hand a replica will do the trick. However you have to make sure that when you buy a replica you have to buy it on a reliable dealer that sells quality rolex replica uk. Luxury are not for the wealthy alone, for everyone has the right to have luxurious things they want. Although the original thing may be very expensive and not everyone can afford them ordinary people still have the right to have luxurious thing it's just that they should considered their budget and settle for replica watches uk with a good quality rather than force themselves to buy the original one and end up bankrupt.
