Today I'm linking up with Joanne from Head Over Heels for Teaching:
I'm loving all of the linky parties this summer and am getting so many ideas I can use in the classroom in the fall. One of the things I used last year that my kiddos really loved and worked hard to achieve were kisses from the kiss your brain jar:
I made this last summer and kept it filled with Hersey kisses. When kids improved on a test, gave a great answer, or just wowed me, I would tell them to kiss their brain. They would kiss their hand then touch their brain. Then I'd give them a kiss from the jar.
This worked well for me and my kids. They loved the whole process and I think it got them to dig a little deeper in they type of answers they gave.
