Morning all! I know, I know it is really Tuesday but I wanted to hook up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics and try out her Monday Made It Linky Party. Bear with me, I'm new at this bloggy stuff, so anyone that is willing to offer some help, it would be greatly appreciated my Teacher Friends! Like someone help me figure out how to get a blog button!!!
Anyways~ A few weeks ago on Pinterest I saw that someone had pinned a SMARTIE pants award they had given students before taking end of the year assessments. I put my own flair on them and created something to give to my sixth graders on the first day. Sixth grade is a HUGE.. I MEAN HUGE transition for our students. They have to learn how to follow a schedule, open a locker and find friends in the cafeteria, so they come in pretty nervous and excited. I made these "Smarties" as cards to help them remember their locker numbers and combos. When I get my HR list I'll fill in the students' name, locker number and combo and add the Smartie. I don't go back to school until after Labor Day. On the first day the kids can put them in the pocket in the back of their Agendas until they memorize the combo and then put them in a safe place at home to help their parent if they are sick from school.
Thanks to all for allowing me to share!!
Happy Teaching All
