How to Make INTRINSIC LEARNERS! #Kinderfriends

How to Make 
INTRINSIC 
Learners!

I am right in the middle of Teacher-Parent Conferences.
I work at a Title 1 school with 99% FREE LUNCHES.
LOTS of LOW INCOME, struggling families.
WONDERFUL people..

Just that education is NOT one of the top 3 items on their survival list!
AND THEIR KIDS KNOW IT!

So how do I...1 person...help the kids WANT to LEARN?
(Especially because  a lot of them...are FAR FAR BEHIND?)

HOW can you MAKE someone an
 INTRINSIC LEARNER??

You CAN'T!
 You can't MAKE anyone "want" anything!

BUT, you can give them 3 three things to HELP:

#1


You can give them MOTIVATION!
Find the "carrot". 
Watch, listen, talk!
Find the "thing" that will help add some "DESIRE" to change!

What "thing" will help spark the desire?


#2
Make it FUN!
As we all know....
If it's FUN...exciting...enjoyable
WE WILL WANT TO DO IT AGAIN!

Spark their creativity! 
Do something THEY want...
Add some SPICE to the day!

Laugh!  DANCE!  Giggle!


#3
Make them believe they can do ANYTHING!


A little FAIRY DUST...
A LOT of  "I BELIEVE IN YOU!"

And ...They can FLY!
( You know what I mean...)

Show them how to be better, how to EXCELL..how to do it ALL!


 I think the conferences have made me rethink my day.
If I can keep them IN SCHOOL ( maybe even on time & ALL day!),
 If they know I BELIEVE IN THEM,
 and I give them fun & exciting reasons to be HERE...

We can learn.... from each other!

Help them, help themselves!

You can MAKE intrinsic learners!
