Believe it or not, there’s a lot to celebrate this year. When schools must adapt, teachers are uniquely prepared to learn. By teaching our children, you are constructing our future.
Online Reward System for Students
Celebration looks different this year, but there are still plenty of ways to keep class joyful and set up an online reward system for your students, even if you can’t see them in person yet. Here are some ideas to reward individual students and celebrate as a full class!
Be the Class DJ
Maybe not all of your students love to dance. But do they like music? Choose an activity that can have a playlist, like a creative project. Reward a student by letting them pick the songs (school-friendly ones, of course!) and get their classmates’ creative juices flowing. Alternatively, you can plan short breaks throughout the day, and let one student be the class DJ during each break. But make sure they have time to plan so they don’t spend every break picking songs!
Change Name for the Day
One of the features of Zoom (among other videoconferencing platforms) is that students can have their names displayed at all times. It’s great at the beginning of the year and when there are class visitors! Looking for free virtual rewards for students that are sure to brighten their day? Let them pick a new name, just for the day. Maybe Sandra wants to Queen Sandra for a day. Or Josiah wants to be Joe Cool.
Online Dance Party
The classic pizza party doesn’t work so well online. But a dance party does! Have students turn on their webcams and dance together as a reward for entire class. Looking to reward just one student in particular? Have them be the dance leader! They make the moves, and the rest of the class follows.
