My youngest son started third grade last week with a bang. He hopped in my car after the first day with a BIG smile on his face. I asked how his day went and he responded quickly that he had a great day and really like his new teachers and class. He continued on that the best part was that his teachers would be issuing "WOWZA's" whenever they caught a child doing a good job. At the end of the week, the "WOWZA's" will be put in a hat and a few names will be drawn. The lucky winners get to take a trip to the prize box.
Ahh, I thought the small things it takes to motivate a young child, but really... I would love to get a "WOWZA" every once and a while too. I can't imagine how I would feel after making dinner or making my bed to receive a "WOWZA" every once and a while!
