Motivating Game

Found in: games; motivating students; staying on task

Here's a great motivating way to keep kids on task as you go through an assignment. I call it "The Die Game". It's useful when we're correcting answers or reading a science text and filling out a packet. If a student gets the correct answer, I let them roll a die. I post the reward for each possible number on the board. For example:

  • 1=Dum Dum lollipop
  • 2=sticker
  • 3=class reward ticket
  • 4=handful of pizza goldfish
  • 5=move your seat for the period
  • 6=zip, zilch, nada, nothing!

Sometimes, I let the kids help me decide the rewards. It hardly takes any time and it keeps the kids highly motivated.
