Writing in kindergarten can sometimes be a struggle. My teaching partner mentioned an idea she had seen before that motivated students to do a great job in their writing. I thought for our quarter writing, it would be the perfect chance to try it out and encourage good writing. It's amazing what a little string of lights will do! :) For a chatty class like I have, these lights were like magic. Students that were working hard on their writing and doing it quietly were able to go to the carpet by the lights and write. Of course EVERYONE wanted to write by the lights and on a clipboard, so they were super quiet and working hard the entire time.
