January Pick 3 Pinterest Linky

I am excited to join The Inspired Owl's Corner and PAWSitively Teaching's Pick 3 Linky!

Since I teach middle school, I know I needed to find some motivation tricks for when we return from this wonderful 2 week long break.  So where did I turn?  Pinterest, of course!  So here are my top 3 Pinterest finds for classroom motivation:

This first pin is a super improvers wall from Whole Brian Teaching.  I think it would be great to get some competition in the room and I am thinking of teaming up students and having them work their way up the ranks to earn various privileges.

The next big thing we were struggling with before the break was homework!  So I am thinking of implementing a homework club!  Students who complete their homework stay in the club, earn points for their team and earn a nice treat from me at the end of the marking period.

Last but not least, we all know that true motivation comes from within, and so I have decided to ask my students "What motivates you?"  I think I may show them small copies of this pin for them to draw upon.  Would be a great exit ticket after setting new year goals, right?

These are my top 3 picks and you can join the linky fun too or just check out all these other great finds!
