Teacher Tip Tuesday!

With the holidays coming, everyone is excited…..So write down a  surprise activity, like extra recess or a small treat or eraser at the end of the day. Fold the paper in half and make a big deal looking at it, but not letting the students see it just yet. Tape it to your white board and write "SURPRISE" next to it. During the day, if the class gets loud or students are not working, erase a letter starting at the end of the word. Add  the missing letters  back when everyone is behaving well. If the complete word is intact at the end of the day, students earn the surprise. Work hard the first few times to let them earn the surprise, so that this activity will have a larger impact in the future!
