Eureka Jar


An empty jar

What to do:

I noticed this idea on twitter thanks to @ActionJackson 
MT: @Actionjackson Fill up a jar with notes of things that made you smile/appreciate. Dip in when feeling low!

How about using this with your students? Have an Eureka Moment Jar. When a student 'gets it.' Ask them to write down why/how and put it in your jar. Label the slip by the topic. Get students to dip into the Eureka Moment Jar when any student is particularly struggling.


Do not write the topics down, ask students to guess based on the eureka moment?
