Happy Weekend Teacher Friends! For some of you, I bet this is the first weekend of summer. Some of us have a few more weeks, or at least a few more days to go and we are going to need the fabulous ideas that I am certain will be posted today over at Head Over Heels for Teaching!
I'm linking up with what might be my quickest, simplest post ever because it's a beautiful day and I am heading out for tennis and then the pool with my kiddos.:)
All people, especially kids, need to feel successful!
Kids will work harder to make something they are proud of better;but they won't work very hard if they feel like they are never going to get it right anyway!
We, as teachers, need to remember that progress is progress no matter how small, and success for one child may be very different from the success of another.
There's my tip for a way to SPARK STUDENT MOTIVATION! Make them feel successful and good about themselves and their work, and they just might surprise you. You might be the first teacher that has ever found that wonderful skill hidden deep within them that makes them feel successful! And if you are, take that skill and begin building a confident successful student!
Happy Weekend Teacher Friends! I'm off to enjoy this beautiful day!
