Enough said about that, lol!So, I thought it was time to share something positive! There is so much to share, because my kids are GREAT! However, I will keep this post simple for Joanne's Spark of Motivation Saturday linky:)
from Amanda Zanchelli) up on the same board. Sadly, even though this picture was taken a couple weeks ago, we are still on "-OMEWORK." Oh, my sweet little Diego..., but we haven't lost hope yet!
I just put a couple of those peel off magnets on the back of the index cards and put them up on the board with their word count totals next to their names. This will make it easier to rearrange and not use up so many index cards because it changes weekly.
The kids were so excited to see their names up there! When this was taken, we were only two weeks into using the program. They are anxiously awaiting an update! All but a few have completed books by now (some are are reading longer chapter books), and they want their totals on the board. Every time they pass a quiz, they come by and tell me, and then they ask when I am going to change the numbers.
So simple and so exciting for them! It holds them accountable and they are motivated by a little old fashioned competition.
Another way that I am holding them accountable for their reading is by using my new Weekly Reading Log!
my Teachers Pay Teachers store this morning! I just put it up as a "FLASH FREEBIE" this morning. I will leave it as "FREEBIE" until I am done running my errands. If you do pick it up, leave me a little love:).
Have a great weekend! Me, I plan on doing as little as possible because it is supposed to be up over 105 degrees today. Just praying that the electricity doesn't go out!
