When it comes to childhood education, it can be hard to keep up with so many young minds at work. As a teacher, you find yourself in a unique position to understand and cultivate the minds of all of your students, which can be overwhelming, exciting, and terrifying all at once. Teachers certainly have their work cut out for them, and so do your students! As the end of the school year closes in, why not give your young students some custom awards just for them? Classroom rewards and certificates are great encouraging tools, and make your students feel like their hard work is going towards good use. In this video, we will look at some classroom award ideas that you can try in your own class.
At the end of the year, gather all your students for an awards ceremony. Without a doubt, many of your students will receive rewards for making the honor roll or getting outstanding marks in certain subjects. However, there will always be those that do not, so make an effort to recognize them as well! Incorporating a “tidy desk” award will encourage organization, and a “most creative thinker” award will show that not everybody expresses their creativity in the same way.
