As the end of the year draws closer and close, I've noticed that my little friends are getting chattier...and chattier...and (you guessed it!) chattier.
As an extra motivational incentive, I've started a little competition--which group is quietest? I've put the kiddos into teams (boys vs. girls) and arranged their desks as such. Each group has been assigned a captain, and it's the captain's job to make sure the groups are staying focused, listening, and on task.
This will be a competition that goes on until. the end of the year. At the end of each day, I'll reward either the boys or girls a point based on who was quietest. I'm curious to see which group really rises to the occasion! At the end of our competition, the winners will each receive 3 charger tickets (incentive cards passed out around the school for good behavior).
The kiddos are so excited, and I have to admit, so am I!
