The other day we were adding words to our math journal... As we were adding them I was also reviewing old words. Copying down definitions is so very boring, but very much needed. So what do you do to make it a little less boring? Reward with treats! YUMMY!
You can use anything to reward. I was using Reeces Pieces (and before you say anything, I am aware of all allergies in my room and we are NOT a peanut free school). I was giving one piece to each participating student with the right answer. Man did that turn the lesson around quickly! They were VERY excited.
You could probably do this with erasers (the fun ones) or stickers too.
