Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Fox and Giraffe Informational Paragraph - Section 3: Partner Work


One reason my students are motivated is because I use a lot of positive reinforcements. Now, I believe intrinsic motivation is best, but in the primary grades sometimes it begins as an extrinsic reward. I do pass out these tickets, Eagle Eyes, and you get one if you are doing the right thing. They can be spent like money in our school bookstore. I also use positive talk and brag on my students. But, probably their favorite thing I do is allow them to have free dance time for maybe two minutes if they have had a really well behaved day. Well, sometimes we do it when they just do something great. So, I took a video of one of our dancing minutes.  The students by the Smart Board is selecting the song, because she loves music and to use the Smart Board.
