Positive celebrations

Print FriendlyPrint Friendly

Celebrating successes–big or small–is an important part of Continuous Improvement.  Celebrations can be planned at the same time as goals are set, or impromptu when progress is made towards a goal.  Students should help plan celebrations to encourage buy-in.

Begin with a brainstorming activity.  Consider a Kagan structure like round or rally robin, to generate a list of possibilities.  A quick affinity diagram to group like suggestions and nominal group technique to vote on a selection.

Some ideas:

  • a wild rumpus
  • any of the Kagan gambits
  • extra reading time
  • extra recess time
  • board game party
  • student or class of the week assembly
  • announcements by the principal highlighting small achievements
  • a ‘Quality’ table in the lunchroom

How does your school like to celebrate?
