My students know me as, among other things, the teacher with wicked prizes. For unexpected achievements, successful completion of challenges, winnings of contests – I give them a prize. And they go wild. It is amazing how juniors and seniors can light up like Christmas trees (or Hanukkah bushes) when they receive a finger puppet or a rubber ball for a job well done. For Halloween, my prizes become giveaways to kids who costume up and demand their due at my front door. Where do I shop?

Pick up fun stuff in bulk and hand them out with fear of going broke. Kids and adults are totally tickled when they get a devil duck or water snake… You will be a god…
