Sparking Student Motivation Saturday - Help for the Teacher
Elementary AMC April 20, 2013
I am lucky that Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching is such an awesome person because I am linking up with her awesome linky with something that might not fit 100% but I know she will not kick me out of the party!
Way back in January (I think) I read a blog post (which I can not find for the life of me - if it is you let me know and I will insert Your Name Here) about a behaviour management newsletter. I checked out the website and clicked to receive a free newsletter. They are by Michael Linsin at Smart Classroom Management. I have never read any of his books so I can not tell you about those - but I LOVE the newsletter.
The newsletter is delivered to my school e-mail on Saturday. I don't check my school e-mail all that often on the weekend but I do look forward to opening up the e-mail and getting some sound words of advice and encouragement and motivation to try again for the upcoming week. I love that it is delivered to my e-mail on the weekend - when I have had some time to unwind from the week and am thinking about the week ahead. I put all the little newsletters into a folder, so I can just click and have a little refresher, pep talk, whatever, whenever I need it.
Here is a sample from one of my favorites:
