Before the school year starts, I spend a considerable amount of time searching for different ways to motivate, encourage and reward the students on my diverse caseload.
I came across the idea for creating these “You rock” rocks on entirelyelementary.blogspot.com and decided to make them right away! All I needed to create these rewards was a bag of river rocks (available at the dollar store) and Sharpie markers. Although I kept these very simple, you could make them more elaborate with color, lettering and design.
Another twist is to simply draw a star on the rock so the child knows he or she had a “rock star” day in speech. All said, I think my students will work really hard to earn one of these rocks!
About me: I am a speech-language pathologist working with preschool through eighth-grade students at Gilmanton School in New Hampshire. My particular areas of interest include pediatric feeding/swallowing, social pragmatics and reading intervention.
I am also the author of the blog www.speechroomadventures.com. Outside the field of speech-language pathology, I am a wife, sister, daughter and very proud aunt!
