Happy Saturday! Spark Student Motivation is a place to link up ideas, tips, tricks, lessons, incentives, ANYTHING that motivates your students. If you haven't gone back to school yet, what are you planning that first week of school that will motivate your students? I'd love for you to share your ideas!
My students start Monday, but they came for "Meet the Teacher" yesterday. I like to have a little "goodie" when they come to our classroom. This year I had a set of "Welcome Back to School" coupons waiting for their arrival. I like this idea because it was easy, didn't cost me a thing, and my students knew I cared about them coming to meet me! I have them laid on their desks, so with a quick scan I can also see who didn't show and I can collect all the handouts and place them on those desks.
There are eleven coupons that include a homework pass, eat lunch with the teacher, sit with a friend, free pencil, extra computer time and two favorites: use pen all day and a FREE answer on an assignment!
These coupons can set some students up for success right away! Maybe they're not in full swing from summer and really need an answer on an assignment so they don't feel frustrated or maybe they're not having a good day and want to sit next to a friend. The coupons give them choice and leverage to start our school year!
You know they'll all use that free homework pass that first week of school!
I created these coupons for "back to school", but without the cover on top of the book, these coupons could be used all year!
Don't forget to fill up those wish lists for the Back to School Sale that starts tomorrow! Up to 28% off=GREAT SAVINGS!
*If you link up, you will get these coupon books to welcome your students back emailed to you!
Link up any idea that motivates you or your students-if it motivates you, it motivates them! No idea is too small or too big! :O)
