When I was teaching, I loved playing movies because it meant one less lesson plan to prep. And guess what? Students love it too – so much so that you can make it a class reward.
If your whole class has a great week or month, give them a chance to earn a movie “night.” What do we mean by great?
You can track you class's LiveSchool points, and if they reach a certain amount, then they get this benefit. Keep the running point tally live leading up to the event, so students are constantly reminded to behave and hold each other accountable.
Make some individual bags of popcorn, let them put their feet up on their desks, and hit play. You can always choose a movie that’s connected to what students are learning in your class.
