Hi I'm Laura from and I'm going to talk about motivating young students. Young students can be very easily motivated because they are really curious and love learning. They haven't learned any differently so their natural curiosity leads them to really enjoy and really want to explore and learn so ways to really take advantage of that are to make learning very discovery based. Provide them opportunities to do hands on projects where they will really be able to discover things on their own, also providing a workshop model where they are working with each other where they have a small cadre of students and are able to work together and provide guidance to each other and feedback to each other helps to make learning much more motivating. Another idea is doing tricks and leaving the classroom as often as possible so that learning still continues to be fun and not predictable can be a great way to motivate your class. So some of these ideas just involve getting parents involved, finding ways within your school and in your district that you can have new opportunities for discovery and for learning but the work is worthwhile because it will end up motivating your students.
