Organized classes and folders for teachers
Increases student engagement
Can be used during center time
Increases parental involvement
Allows parents an opportunity to see what students are working on at school
How it works:
When you see a student doing something you want to praise them for, simply sign your name on the Super Shark award (I suggest signing 5-10 each week so that they will be ready) and put the students name and why they are receiving the award on it.
Give the Super Shark award to the student, the rest is their responsibility.
The student will then be required to fill out the remainder of the award and during lunch that day or the following, they will take the bottom portion of their award and put it in their grade level "mail box" which will be located in the cafeteria.
Each Friday, names will be drawn from each grade level mail box and staff mail box and announced during morning announcements. Those students will get to come to the office to go to the office goody box.
This will take the place of sending students to the office goody box during the week- they will receive a Super Shark award instead.
The names that are drawn will be taken out of the box, but if a student's name isn't drawn that week, it will remain in the mail box until it is drawn. So each week the names continue to accumulate.
Teachers, if your name/class is drawn, you will receive a blue jean coupon.
Parents and Community members will be chosen monthly and will be notified that they received a Super Shark award and will have their name/ business name and picture posted on a bulletin board in the front office, as well as submitted to the Palacios Beacon.
