Day 8 of 20 Days to BlogTastic - Celebrating Success
Celebrating success in learning is something I feel strongly about. I think it's really important to celebrate those things we've worked hard at, we've shown resilience to get to and persisted until the end. I believe it's important to celebrate individual and group success.
So what ways can we celebrate success on our class blogs? Here are a few ideas...
- Weekly certificate recipients
- Student of the week
- Moving up a reading, writing or maths level
- Building understanding/skills in a rubric
- Getting to the next stage in a project
- Finishing a project
- Maths warm up champions
- Class Dojo winner for the day/week/term
- Most correct questions on Skoolbo/Mathletics/Study Ladder

Handing Over to Students
Give this opportunity to your students, or if you're teaching younger students get older students to help your students to complete the task in the morning before the day starts.
