Linking up with Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching!
Here’s my ONE TIP for student motivation – Lunch Line Fast Pass!
As part of my independent reading incentive program, I have struggled to find “legal” rewards since my school outlawed using candy as reinforcers (WHAT!). Each 9 weeks, the top 5 readers per grade (ranked by AR points) get a Lunch Line Fast Pass. This means that each day for an entire 9 weeks, those students get to go to the front of the cafeteria lunch line OR the front of the microwave line. I’ve found this to be an especially powerful motivator for middle school boys! You can read more about my independent reading incentive program here.
