Celebrating Success with Students
Take time to celebrate success with your students. Celebrating success is fun, and it is hard being a teacher, so we have to create our own celebrations.
I try to find something every day to celebrate with my kids. If someone read a word for the first time, do a cheer.
If one of the students remembers their homework, sing a special song. Whatever it is that you are celebrating, do something fun.
I do not mean go spend $20 on cupcakes – do something simple and free, yet fun!
With many of my classes we have made a class cheer. When someone does something really, really good I let him or her scream the cheer so loud that they could probably hear it down the road. It’s quick, free and fun and you get the added bonus of making your students feel good.
