Looking for a little easy motivation??

If you all are anything like us, we have serious cases of Spring Fever.  And by that I mean, the kids and the teachers!  This year my class needs a lot of extra love and I have been needing to change up the routine a lot as well as behavior plans and management ideas. 

Soooo...when my own 2nd grader came home and was begging to go online and do EXTRA math homework to earn a reward, I had to check it out.  I had heard of the website before but didn't know much about it.  There are some awesome math testing resources here!

I sat down on Tuesday night and looked into.  I learned there is a FREE 30-day subscription (which coincidentally takes me to almost the end of the year), so I signed up.  It literally took me 10 minutes to sign up and enter my kids names.  Then, I just printed parent notes with passwords for each student.

I decided that I would give my kids a little incentive of earning tickets (our school incentive program) dependent on how many problems they completed each week.   Needless to say, I was SHOCKED when I opened my email the next morning and 10 of my kiddos had already spent a total of 3+ hours on the site!!

Today, I passed out tickets to about 80% of my kids...they loved it, I loved it, and they are getting smarter!

Check it out!
