Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying the end of your school year and aren’t too overwhelmed with fitting everything in.
Do you have an end of the year celebration with your students? Do you give out student awards? I know many people have gone away from these special events in kindergarten because of the “everyone gets a trophy” mentality that we see so much of these days. Now don’t get me wrong, I definitely have students that are more difficult to celebrate than others, but I truly believe that every one of my students brings something special to my class and I love taking the time at the end of the year to celebrate them. Sometimes it is the kids that have been the most challenging that need and appreciate the award most.
I’ve created a set of awards that I use every year. These awards cover a majority of my students for high achievement, incredible growth, being a great friend, persistence, etc. but I also included editable versions, because not every student will fit one of these awards. I always have some special friends that just need something original. And just in case you’re running low on ink I’ve included black and white versions as well!
To make this a little more beautiful you can copy them on colored paper, or better yet, have students color them in after they receive them for a more personal touch!
Grab the free sample of these awards in our “That’s a Wrap! Facebook Hop” going on right now. Or if you’d like to check out the full pack complete with editable versions to meet all of your needs you can view it here:
