I have said it before and I will say it again - using themes, like holidays, when teaching is a great way to Spark Student Motivation. So of course I am linking up with my friend Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching for her weekly motivating linky!
At Christmas we turned our classroom into the Elves' Workshop with activities, crafts and a reward system. It was so fun we decided to revisit these ideas for Easter.
First of all we are writing persuasive letters to the Easter Bunny in order to apply for assistant positions. Here are some pictures....

This upcoming week is a short one but as holidays approach sometimes our behaviour starts to slip. So I will be introducing Bunny Bucks, classroom money to reward good behaviour. We will spend this money in a class store at the end of the month (we have testing at the end of the month in Grade 4 so I am going to keep the money going to help keep us on track). I am printing mine on spring coloured paper instead of using coloured clip art to save on ink : ). Click on the picture of you would like some bunny bucks too!!
