It's Saturday! You know what that means!!! My BBB Joanne from Head Over Heels For Teaching has a fun Saturday linky!
What Teachers Really Want To Tell Parents.
Aaaaaanyway, so the idea is, when students get 100% on a test, they get to wear a button all day like this:
Well, I'm a printer label girl (if you can't tell by now... and a post-it girl... and a marker pen girl.... :-P ) so instead of buying the buttons that they would have to take off at the end of the day, I made printer labels that the kids could wear as stickers- and could wear home to show off to their parents! A lot of mine like to stick them on their binders, too, so they can "keep them forever." I adjusted the criteria for getting a sticker, though- if you make an A (not just 100%) on the test, you get to wear one. The kids are so excited to get a sticker!! First of all, if they had a test in the morning, they ask me that afternoon if I've graded them (which 9 times out of 10 gets a big fat NO haha!) because they want to know if they got a sticker. When it is time to give the stickers, I do it first thing in the morning (so they'll have their sticker all day), and I make a big production of it. "I have some A Teeeeeeeeeeests!!"
Yesssssssss!!!! They all get super quiet, and you can see them waiting on the edge of their seat. I announce each A-Test one-by-one, and the students cheer for each other! I hand them their test so they know what grade they have, and then they announce their grade. :o) Teachers and other students ask them all day about their test because of the sticker, and you can just see them beam!!
