Okay so for any of you who are struggling with motivating youngsters... I have discovered the magical trick.... CHEESE BALLS!!! This is no joke. Melissa (the girl I teach next door to) told me that in January she uses Cheese Balls as classroom management. I thought it sounded weird but I thought I would give it a try. Sure enough... KINDERGARTENERS WILL DO ANYTHING FOR A CHEESE BALL! Yes, ANYTHING for one measley cheese ball. It is hilarious to watch their faces when someone else gets a cheese ball for being good. There is a hush that comes over them and... it's seriously the best thing EVER!!!
