Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Decomposing 4 - Section 1: Attention Grabber/Introduction


Kindergartners love being the stars of learning, and they really enjoyed using actual kindergartners as “models” for our lesson.  Even some shy kids really seemed to enjoy being part of the group of 4 up front.  After all, they’re not talking or really even moving—they’re happily standing and helping us learn.  Little moments where students are the “stars” of learning make learning more enjoyable.
