A Special Awards Ceremony

On Friday we met as a group and talked about all the successes we've had as a class this year.  We talked about how in September we really didn't know one another since we had come from five different Kindergarten classes but how we have developed into a school family. We care a lot about one another and we are there for each other.

For the past few years Ms. Lirenman has held a year end award ceremony to celebrate our year of success. On Friday we helped her prepare for this years ceremony. You see she isn't the only one that gives out awards, we all do.  In fact we are all going to receive four awards, one from Ms. L, and three from our classmates. We created the classmate awards.

Before we helped create awards we talked about how they needed to be specific to the person on the award. It was also stressed that they needed to be kept a secret until the actual ceremony next week.  This activity allowed us to think about our classmates and the many ways we are so proud of one another.

Here are a few photos of us in our secret spots writing up awards for our classmates.

Here are a few of the awards we wrote. We can't tell you who they are for yet though but you can see that we did try to write awards specific to a classmate. There are many more awards. 20 +20 + 20 + 20 = ? That is how many awards altogether.

Do you have a class awards celebration that celebrates many of the successes in your classroom?

  1. I LOVE this idea! What a wonderful way to celebrate a year of learning together! I just might do the same. How did you decide who would write to whom?
