I originally wrote about my "Smarty Pants Club" here in September. It was an idea I got from our wonderful hostess, Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching.
When students make a 100 on their common assessment, a.k.a. Unit Tests, they sign a sheet and get candy. (not necessarily Smarties, but candy. I hang it up on my "Smarty Pants" Wall.
This is how the board began.
This is the board now.
This past test (the orange ones), I had a few students who I know, NEVER thought they would get their name on that wall. I wish I could have taken a picture of their shock. It was priceless. They were so proud!
I had fallen behind on the board and passing out the tickets and candy. Now,I am finally organized and stocked up on candy and I passed them out the very next day. That made a HUGE impact as well!
It's working!!! It's working!!!
