I loved this idea from Mrs. Richardson's 2nd grade class at Bitterroot Elementary, and wanted to share with you. She uses a Mr. Potatohead to motivate her students. When they receive a certain number of points, they get to choose something new to add to Mr. Potatohead (she has a bucket of his "accessories"). As soon as Mr. Potatohead is put together, they will get a class prize. I thought this was such a cute, creative idea!
I think this would also be fun to use with the digital portfolio tool Seesaw. It could be a student job each day to take a picture of Mr. Potatohead and write/tell about him and how close he is to being "put together" so they can earn their class prize!
