Strategy for an EA child with motivational issues...

Discussion in 'New teachers' started by BV99, Apr 4, 2012.

  1. Hi everyone
    I am hoping I may be able to get some ideas for a year 4 boy in my class who is exceptionally able for literacy and numeracy. During last term (I have been the class teacher since January) he has not shown this ability. He is such an able child but during my last lesson observation, it was noted that he wasn't on task and wrote very little.
    Hence, I have been asked to think of some strategies to motivate and enthuse him to produce more work. I have tried the egg timer and sticker rewards but nothing seems to motivate him. I think he feels complacent that he can do it and therefore, does not have to try.
    Does anyone have any ideas that I could try?
    Many thanks all.
