Spark Student Motivation: Special Deliveries at School

Happy Fall Y'all! That's right! Florida is getting a cold front and our temperatures will be a high of 82! Time to break out the scarves and sweaters! Lol!

My favorite ideas are the simple ones, especially the ones I find or discover on accident!
So simple, it's only changing the shipping address for packages! :)

Do you order books from Amazon? I usually have all of my shipments sent to my house, but this year I've ordered a few books and had them shipped to school and it definitely sparks motivation!

I notify the front office that I'm expecting a package and then I let my student I ordered the book for go pick it up and open it. It's definitely an exciting moment...everyone loves opening packages!

This idea came to me after getting a few students to read the first book in a series. After I get them hooked on a book, I entice them with the second book. I tell them if they think they can finish the book in a couple of days, I'll have the second (or third) book delivered in two days just for them! (If I don't already own the series or sequel.)
 These two were both waiting for this package! This is the sequel to a book they both read. It was so sweet when the package came, they said, "Let's open it together!"

Here's a little clip of these girls opening the package...I love how she ((hugs)) the book after she opens it! TOTALLY worth the delivery!

 A simple idea to make students feel excited and motivated about reading. Think about how we feel when we get mail (especially packages)? It's the same for students!  Try this simple idea, you'll love and your students will love it!
