Harry Potter in the classroom. Hold a sorting ceremony complete with house scarves and a talking Sorting Hat (use a pre-recording on your cellphone) to sort the students into one of four Hogwarts houses - Gryffindor, Slytherian, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw. Students can earn points for following directions, behavior, keeping a clean station, etc. At the end of the quarter award "Ms. Hager's House Cup" to the house with the most points. Very motivational classroom management strategy!
