What is this I keep hearing about sprinkles?
Recently, I have introduced the idea of "sprinkles" into our classroom. I was finding that students were resting on average work at times. So I decided to use another teacher as a resource and introduce the idea of "sprinkle" work. When I introduced sprinkles to the students I began by asking them if they would want a burnt cookie or a cook with icing and sprinkles... they all said sprinkles. I then proceeded to explain to the students that what I want is for the students to add sprinkles to their work. This means that they need to be adding color, explanations, details and over all neatness. I have explained to the students that not everyone is an artist, but that doesn't mean that we all can't add color to a picture to make it more inviting. We are working on leadership both in our classroom and in our work-- this means doing our best all the time :)
Spread the idea of sprinkles at home!!! :)
