Friends~I am always trying to motivate my class of 2nd graders.
I work really hard to keep them focused and I feel like I have been super successful with the focus part. The part I have felt like I needed to FOCUS on as a teacher is the application part. My kiddos listen, participate, and a good part of them can apply what I taught but I still have some that lack what I am pretty sure is confidence.
This year, because of our new computer based benchmark testing I knew I needed to fix this fast so that my kiddos would be successful. This is what I came up with.
Our Class MOTTO for SUCCESS!
We created our class motto for success! I wanted it to be short and sweet but I also wanted it to be an empowering message. I talked with my students about what they thought equaled success and these 3 simple words are what we came up with.
To be successful in class you need to simply:
This is where I really scored! My friend makes T Shirts and she whipped this one up for my assistant and I to wear!
My kiddos are going to love them!
If you want to order your own T Shirt you can just click the shirt above to contact my friend Chantel. She will hook you up!
Just tell her Monica sent you!
They honestly get such a kick out of the motto that I am seeing students that have never really tried giving it a shot. In fact, I am so proud to say all of my students passed their Winter Benchmark in comprehension and our fluency was FANTASTIC!
