    Awards

    I am a 5th grade teacher and I want to give out different "Awards" for the end of the year. Examples of some are "Neatest writer" and "Math Wizard." I also want some creative or fun ones. If you have ever gotten anything cool like that when you were 10 or can think of any, please post them.

    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Awards

    You should give out an award to a kid who will inevitably gripe and moan throughout his life, feel he's entitled to everything and will undoubtedly never work hard because he was coddled too much when he was young.

    Sorry, it's raining and my Friday morning isn't going the best. I don't have the capacity to think positively at this point.

    If you're in Iowa, which it appears you are, there's always a big Cyclone and big Hawkeye fan in the class. Best Cyclone Fan is a good award...Future Jail Bird is good for biggest Hawkeye fan.

    If your students go to other teachers for subjects, ask them for ideas from there. It will show that you know what happens outside your classroom.

    Be sure everyone gets an award. And there can be ties. Try to think of unique qualities of your students and focus on those.

    This can be a great way to end the year, but be careful when choosing topics and recipients. Some unintended consequences could come back to bite you. Good luck.

    I can't believe you are not using Andrew's suggestions, he gave you plenty.

    Why does everyone need to get an award? There were plenty of times in school when someone was awarded something that I wasn't. That only made me try harder next time.

    You haven't been in a school classroom lately, have you?

    Re: Awards

    I don't know about everyone needing an award. Sometimes even a 5th grader can tell when you're reaching.

    I would suggest not using things like "bookworm" or "quiet as a mouse." These things can have negative connotations and can really affect a kid. Best reader would be a better choice. Keep it positive and don't make stuff up just to give a kid an award.
