The summer Mondays are dwindling down and that makes me very sad:( My projects have turned into more lessons that fun crafts! Thanks Tara over at 4th grade Frolics for making Mondays so awesome:)
So today I present a few items I have made to use this school year. At the very end, I will ask another question and if you can guess it right I will email all my Monday Made it creations for free:)
Project 1. Super Spellers Club
So this year I want to showcase my students who do well at their spelling tests! I find that many kids just don't care about practicing throughout the week and then on Friday's it shows! So my plan is to have a Super Spellers Club board set up in my room. When they get their first 100% on a test they will enter the club. They will get some kind of pendant to place on the board. After that, for each 100% they get I will give them a sticker to place on their pendant. This is just a small showcase of their hard work and getting 100%.
Project 2. Frogtastic Spellers ClubI did the same thing as above, but made it frog themed! I am undecided which one I will use!
Project 3. Topics to write about
During center time, I want to give students more options to write about. I have created writing task cards, but I wanted something more visual on the board for them to choose instead of flipping though cards. I plan on placing these in a pocket cart or something like that to display these cards. I have 56 cards in all!
Project 4: No homework pass
Last Monday Made it I talked about how I do rewards for homework. When students turn in their homework they get to put their name on the back of a ticket. On Friday's I am going to roll a dice to see how many tickets I will pull out for a winner. So if I role a 3, I will pull 3 winners. Well, what will those winners win? I have thought about this over and over. This is my plan! Each student will get a punch ticket. If their name is pulled out, they will get a punch on their punch pass. Once all the punches are punched they will get a free homework pass. I thought about giving students a free homework pass when their ticket is called, but then I will be giving free homework passes each week and I don't think I want to do that. So here they are! What do you think? I am thinking of making a few themes too! Not sure!
Project 5. Frogtastic sticks
I used these last year as table top awards. When a table was doing what they were supposed to be doing or helping each other, working together they got to color in a letter. When all the letters were colored in, they got a prize. I am hoping to do this again this year.
I will be placing all of these items in my TPT and TN stores later this afternoon...BUT...
Here is how you can win all of these items for free:)1. follow my blog
