Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Geopuzzle Sort & Count - Section 2: Direct Instruction


What I have noticed other the years is that Halloween isn't just for October. Kids love anything Halloween or "scary" all year long. I use holiday stories to ignite interest and to get kids motivated to learn the skill and be able to explain it. Even though it may not be the holiday season, using the stories from that time of year can get kids excited about learning and talking about it.
