Shout-out to Mrs.Oelfke for providing an opportunity for her students to celebrate Smarty Ants growth and goals. Mrs. Oelfke's class tracks their Smarty Ants progress on a colorful and engaging PacMan board outside of the classroom. Students are regularly given opportunities to celebrate one another's growth and explain what choices and supports helped them meet their goals.
Celebrating growth stimulates intrinsic motivation within students. It also contributes to a positive classroom culture. When students cheer on other students, everyone wins! Way to go Mrs. Oelfke!
