Here is a scenario that happens monthly with me. I find a paper in my teacher mailbox saying that it's time for me to choose my next student of the month, and turn in it by this Wednesday, thank you very much. I think about who I should pick, and I try to find my list of students that I have already chosen, so I can pick a different student. I can't find my list, so I put the paper on my desk and forget about it for a few more days.
Before I know it, it's Wednesday and someone is walking in my room, right in the middle of instruction, asking me for that student of the month paper. AHHHHHH! I still don't know who I should choose! So I find myself asking the students, "Who has been student of the month already?"
HELP! I needed to get better organized! So I decided to make a poster that will display all the students of the month for the entire year. I thought that posting it in the classroom will be an incentive for my students to stay on task, in addition to reminding me who has been chosen.
I am planning on taking a picture of each of the students of the month and then posting them in each starred rectangle.
Well, look at this creation!!! I made a volcano out of ice cream!
I found the picture in an old Family Fun magazine and thought it looked like fun!
Here is what you need to get started.
I made a few more blocks!
Modern Dresden Block
Ohio Star Block
You can see the other blocks that I have finished HERE.
