Standard

These little, rubber cones have brought smile after smile to my classroom for the past several years.  A  colleague introduced them to me; and when she moved, I inherited her stash.  Now they are a regular part of my teaching.

Here are ways to use them:

Are you one of the first to post your warm up on Google Classroom?  You get a compliment  cone!

Did you capitalize properly? You get a compliment cone!

Did you put a lot of effort into a small assignment? You get a compliment cone!

Did you offer an insightful answer?  You get a compliment cone!

Did you take a healthy chance and share your writing with the class? You get a compliment cone!

Were you a leader in class? You get a compliment cone!

Is your group on task? You get a compliment cone!

Did you notice a typo in my writing? You get a compliment cone!

The possibilities are endless.

You can find them at Dollar Tree, Amazon and other retailers.

One  caveat:  this year, my 9th graders have found great delight in suctioning them to the tables so they make popping sounds when they remove them.  No good deed, lol.
