I am excited to link up for Spark Motivation Saturday with Joanne at Head Over Heals for Teaching. I love reading about all the great motivating ideas every Saturday. Today I am going to tell you about select seating. I love incorporating fun chairs into my classroom. I have a giant purple chair that the students literally fight over at "read around the room" time and a zebra bean bag chair. I also have some fun stools I purchased over the summer for a steal...except my 4th graders are getting big and when they rock on them, the legs bend. :( I don't want to take the chairs away from the kids because when they are in them, they are actually reading. The rule is that if you get a fun seat and are not reading, your forfeit your seat. The problem is, these chairs are expensive. My daughter grew out of her "My First Anywhere Chair" so I washed it and brought it in. I figured the kids would use it as a pillow...Nope...they loved it. It was the first chair the students pick when they pick they win the choose your seat for the day coupon from our reward coupons. By the way, if you don't have these...they work WONDERS!
Here is one of my little gems showing us he can use the anywhere chair ...well...anywhere. haha (This was during Friday's spelling test!
If that's not motivating for him and the other students to try to get that coupon, then I don't know what is!
Before I head out for the day, I had to tell you, my BBB is having a birthday and a giveaway! Check it out!
Have a wonderful weekend! :)
