I am not trying to win any prizes. In fact, I cannot imagine what they must think of me with my frizzy hair and no make-up look. And I do not want to be the mean teacher either. I want my kids to have fun. But, I do want them to take just a little more pride in the work I am giving them to do.
This coming week, I am going to present their worksheets like the ones below. I will try only giving stamps to the papers that are colored nicely and done correctly.
This may end up being harder than I thought. I'll let you know how it goes.
