of the Week
Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
Submitted: April 12, 2001
a praise phrase for the week or a new, fun vocabulary word for
your students to use during the week. Challenge your students
to see how many times they can use that phrase or word throughout
the week. Give them a "wink" when you hear that phrase
or word so they know you realized the effort they made in order
to say it aloud. Watch their smiles light up the room! Some ideas
for praise phrases might include: "Wow! Nothing can stop
you now!" or "Hurray for you!" or "You're
so smart, you could be the principal of our school!"
students to also use that word somewhere in their writing this
week. You'll be able to see if they understand the meaning when
it's written in context.
