I have been teaching for 34 years, currently teaching Prep to year 2 in a small farming community in Western Qld. I like to change my motivation system every term. I came across the teachers pet on Facebook and teamed it with the idea of the children earning stickers on the colourful charts, working towards them choosing their own desk pet when it was filled. I have a pet hotel filled with an assortment of small pets ( erasers from Kmart) they are aiming to collect them over the term. After the introduction of reading the book and drawing activity, I bought out Bob(my pet) out of my office. The children were so excited and continue to talk to Bob every day 3 weeks into the term. The work and behaviour standard is so high that I will continue this system for another term. Thank you for the idea and resources which are motivating my students in make good choices in their learning journey.
