Spark Student Motivation: Pick Me! Pick Me! Student Engagement


If you follow my blog, you know how I feel about DOLLAR TREE! Well, they've done it again! Another item we can use as an effective engagement tool in our classrooms!
My friend was so excited to share this with me because she couldn't believe she found something at Dollar Tree before me! (I practically work there!) Now, we're sharing with you!

Want to get even your reluctant learners to participate? These flashing lights will get ALL your students excited to share their thinking!!

 They're actually flashing stickers, just don't peel the back off if you want to use them over and over again. There were a few different designs to choose from. (They were located on a freestanding display in front of the checkouts.)

 The flashing light signals me that this student wants to participate and she's ready to share!

 In order to activate the light, you must be an active listener so you can answer the question correctly or cite evidence from the text. And, you KNOW they all want to activate the light, so they're ALL listening! :) We're so tricky sometimes aren't we??!!

 After a student answers, I like to see if my students have anything else to "add on"...these lights are the perfect tool to see who has more  to share.

Sometimes we have those quiet students who know the answer, but are sometimes reluctant to share or other more vocal students take over the discussion. This "silent" gadget allows everyone to participate and is a quick tool for me to assess their learning and understanding!


So, for a dollar a piece, definitely a great investment! :)

 
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!

  2. I like the idea of putting something out there that THEY want to do in order to get them to do something YOU want them to do! This makes me think how I could work this with my middle schoolers... Thanks! :)

  3. Watch the holiday and dollar racks at Target. I bought these for my treasure box both after Halloween and Christmas for $0.25!! They weren't holiday scenes, just characters (Frozen, superheroes, princesses, animals, etc). A few weeks ago I saw some more on an end rack by the Valentine stuff, but they weren't on sale so I kept on walking. I never thought of using them like this. Great idea!!!

  5. Totally works...One of my students is very difficult to get engaged in lessons saw another student light his sticker and he said can I do what he's doing and I said once you get your problem done he did his problem faster than he has all year and correctly he was able to light he was engaged the entire math lesson thanks for the wonderful idea!
