I went in to school today to work on organizing (who knew I had so much glitter?!) and to do a few bulletin boards. As soon as I get my official class list, I will finish my "Welcome" board in the hallway... and I'm super excited to show you the picture of it!
This is one that I finished today- my board to display the members of my "100 Club". I ordered the banner from Vista Print and the little white basket at the bottom of the banner has some star sticky notes and a marker, so when a kid completed a level, I will add their name to a sticky note and put it in the appropriate section on the banner.
If you aren't familiar with my club, it is an optional "extra" for my kiddos in which they can earn a place in the club by reading extra books outside of school time. This page on my website gives additional information.
My students last year were really psyched about the club... I think anytime you call something a "club" they get pumped about it! I had two students to read over 200 books and one who completed the 100 Club 4 times!
If you go to the link to my website, you can download a 100 Club book tracking sheet and printable awards for each level of the club. My students kept their tracking sheet in their HORSE folders and I would look them over ever couple of days. This was also a good way for them to keep track of books they read at home and needed to take an AR test on in class.
OK! That's it for today!
