Spark Student Motivation: Flashlight Friday!

Can I get a whoop whoop? It's Saturday! Let's get motivated!

 
Your students will FLIP FOR FLASHLIGHT FRIDAY!!!
Each student has their own mini flashlight (easy to hold while reading).
*Picked these up at Dollar Tree!
These little babies were perfect for our reading time!
We shut off all the lights and closed the blinds to create the right ambiance!
I don't think it's been this quiet in my room all year! (just saying!)
They were so excited they could barely stand it, but they got right to reading!
 They BEGGED me for extra reading time!
 It was so awesome to see them spread all over the room enjoying their books.
They weren't very happy to return their flashlights to the box, but it will be great motivation for reading!
Flashlight Friday will be a weekly event that I KNOW my students will look forward to! I'm sure they'd love to use those flashlights everyday, but it will make Fridays extra special!
I can't wait until next week! (No one will be absent on Fridays! haha)

UPDATE: Check out my new post on how I used finger flashlights too! :) Click here!

 I hope you had a wonderful week! Please link up any lessons, ideas, tips, tricks, incentives, ANYTHING you do get your students motivated or excited!

    1. Just added it to my post...Dollar Tree...they might not last forever, but when you have to buy a class set, definitely easier on the wallet!

    2. I love this idea! I'm thinking it might be a good idea to find some reasonably priced wind up flashlights-my students would love those and they may end up being cheaper than replacing batteries! Thanks for sharing your great idea!

  2. Love this idea - love that you put a sign out. Your students will not want to miss Fridays for sure. I need the Dollar Tree near my house to hurry up and open so I can constantly run out and pick up things as they pop into my head (and by that I mean - pop into my head while I read blogs : ) )

  3. Those mini-flashlights are awesome. My kids would love this too. I'll have to be on the lookout for mini-flashlights. My class this year loves to read-I think this would only add to the excitement!

  6. Thanks for the shout out! You can also by the flashlights through Oriental Trading's website. They're about $7 for a dozen. Also, I usually buy batteries in bulk from Home Depot. I think I got them for $13 for 40 batteries. It looks like your kiddos had a blast with it! I might have to change my Flashlight Friday to Flashlight Thursday. We have library on Fridays this year and it's tough to fit it in with library.

  46. Các bé gái trước tuổi dậy thì cũng có nguy cơ bị mắc bệnh viêm âm đạo. Bản thân là các bé gái sẽ không để ý đến mấy biển hiện của bệnh viêm âm đạo nên các phụ huynh cần quan tâm và hỏi han để các bé có thể để ý đến chuyện vùng kín. Nếu trường hợp phụ huynh biết con mình bị viêm âm đạo nếu giấu và không cho đi khám sẽ gây nguy hiểm cho các bé sau này khi trưởng thành.
