I've been slacking. . . I could care less about giving awards or getting them. . . BUT the students LOVE them. I have to get on the awards wagon! So , today I brainstormed with my little friend (my co-art teacher's son) on what I could do for an ART AWARD.
|Here's the crayon and my little friend.|
This is the first kid's face to ever be on my blog!
His mom is a co-worker/friend:)
Classes have been earning colored crayons based on their behavior every art class.
Here's the teacher version of my color chart
Silver: "HEAVEN, can I teach this class all day!"
Green: "My what lovely children you have."
Yellow: "It was fun now it's time to go to your class.""
Red: "Art? What art? We practiced appropriate behavior and now I have a ton of phone calls to make."
The class that has the most silvers wins the GOLDEN CRAYON'S company for a week in their classroom. They also get to personalize the crayon. Not sure what the classes will add but I think a cape, some eyes, even arms might be cool! I cannot wait to see how much gaudier this guy can get.
So there it is my crayon behavior chart (old crayon boxes and laminated cut out crayons) and my giant gold crayon award (passed on weekly and decorated by the best behaved classes.)
I hope this award is silly enough to catch on and *at best* create some school spirit *at worst* be the biggest golden crayon in the dumpster!

A crayon box for each class.
