It is "Motivation Monday" and I found a great resource to help motivate your students. This book is called the "The Energy Bus for Kids" and is an adaptation of "The Energy Bus", an award winning fable by Jon Gordon. This book has an interactive teacher/parent guide and an activity journal at www.energybuskids.com. If you really enjoy it, there are programs offered by Mr. Gordon himself such as assemblies for students, workshops for teachers, and retreats for principals to boost morale and inspire good performance throughout your entire school. I figured that with the standardized testing hitting schools in the very near future, it would be good to get your class pumped and ready to do their best. This is a fabulous resource and I just thought I would bring it to your attention!
