Student Motivation Saturday: The Grinch?

I still keep looking at the calendar and think to myself, is it really May? Already? Cold weather and snow really don't help with the off feeling, that it can't truly be this time of the year. Yet, when looking at the plan book there are lessons for my last 11 and a half days. Crazy.

Just a quick post this evening to join up with my blogging buddy, Joanne for her Student Motivation Saturday!

At the small, rural school I cover, they have found a way to encourage helping others by using the Grinch. At first this project started over Christmas. Then he had to hang around for Valentines day. Now he's still up, guarding the hallway where everyone comes in and out as a reminder to students to help the Grinch keep his heart growing big and strong by helping others around them.

As you can see there are several hearts with notes mentioning who did the good deed and what was done. A fun way to have the Grinch help out!
