Surprise myself…

So this is a hope that I have…to loosen up, try new ways of thinking or looking at things…trying new activities…new strategies…shifting my perspective…

to surprise myself…

6/20: Ah, summer vacation….time to shift from lesson plans and structured days helping kids to my own days….doing…ummm…..????….not sure what. It’s a big change to go from structure and kids to quiet time at home…so…

I decided to make some“Surprise Cards” that include  a few of  the possible ways I might want to surprise myself….to see if I can try to get more motivated to use and carry though on some of those ideas…

Tickets are a good way to actually SEE that one has accomplished something…I’ll give it a try…not sure if it will be motivating or not. I figure it’s worth a try...

7/18: Oh my…those tickets were veryyyy irritating….I switched to using the tally mark chart instead. See post link below for tally chart…I found it useful. I used it for 3 weeks and noticed some added motivation and changes.

There are more ideas in the posts section: Surprise Myself  (including tally charts)

I'd love to "hear" your ideas about this....
