When I go to an exercise class on a regular basis, I notice when I’m improving and getting stronger. This intrinsic reward is usually enough to motivate me to continue. However, I must admit, my motivation increases immensely when the teacher of the class recognizes my efforts too. The same is true for our students learning to read. They are inherently motivated by their own successes as they become more fluent. When their teachers acknowledge this success as well, it often gives them an extra push to work even harder. These little boosts can help them improve even more quickly.
