It’s that time of the year.  After Spring Break.  Everyone is tired, including you.  I’m sure you’re thinking “How many more days until summer?”  You probably started counting down.  Ha!  Well, just like you the kids start thinking the same thing.  Maybe you need some new incentives to get to that last week.

Here is an idea: {a little DIY} cheap but can buy you a few weeks of kids making good choices 🙂

Get yourself a little owl, frog, flamingo…whatever…maybe your class or school mascot or your theme…any sort of statue (our librarian used a gnome) and paint it gold (nothing rocket science here).  All of a sudden you have “The Golden Owl”.  Have kids earn the privilege to keep the statue at their desk for the day.  Your kids could name it or write their names on it to gain some buy-in to the new incentive. They will go bonkers because they get to keep the “golden” whatever for a day.  I like to bring this out this time of the year.  I think it is important to save some tricks for the home stretch.

That’s it!  Easy peasy.

Do you have something you bring out towards the end of the year to ‘make-it’?  I’d love to hear it.  I apologize for having to turn on the stinkin’ comment thingy.  I have been getting to many spam messages and it was clogging up my email.  Ugh!
