There are many ways to motivate kids to do great things.  This is one way I’ve used year after year.  I find that it really works and sends a great message to the class that kindness matters.  I just cut out a bunch of leaves and every time I see the class, an individual or a group of kids doing something great, I give them a leaf on the tree.  We count the leaves every time we get a new one.  Soon we’ll count by twos and do other extended math activities with the leaves.  Fortunately for everyone the tree is filling up fast.  I made it out of this great recycled paper from Williams Sonoma packaging from Gaemi.
