Certificate Street

Certificate Street is an online resource which contains many template for use as certificates in the classroom. It is very east to use. Just download the template, fill in the students name and you’re done. Students will definitely like it if they are rewarded for something they did in class. This does not have to just for use after a test or exam such as the common 1st, 2nd or 3rd certificates but it can also be used for simpler things. These may be things like getting the home work on time a few times in a row, helping others in class, participation, not disrupting the class etc. This little certificate will show the students that they do not need to be best to be rewarded but even ordinary tasks will be rewarding.

Another benefit which may come through the use of these small certificates could be that students who normally don’t bother in class will make an effort to earn one or more certificates. Little by little these students may make a great improvement from where they originally where to where they are in the end. Therefore these certificates will probably motivate the students more throughout the lesson.

    I totally agree with using such positive reinforcement with our students. When giving positive feedback students tend to feel happier and more motivated to work and participate. Furthermore, those who usually fail in exams or homework, by receiving such certificates may be encouraged to strive harder as they feel more appreciated. I also believe that this helps students to work more with each other in groups and teams, being able to see each other opinions and ideas. In this article below, along with those benefits mentioned here, one may find other good affects that positive reinforcements has on students.
