Do you send out Highlight slips to your students & then you can order free stuff. Well I have a TON of those fieldtrip necklaces! Since we only are allowed one fieldtrip a year they just take up space. I bought some necklaces years ago from Lakeshore & they are all torn up & they are discontinued so I decided to make my own. They include: 2 different I am a bucket filler, boy & girl star reader, future scientist, & future historian. You can hand them out daily or weekly. Great way to recognized your students accomplishments while raising their self esteem. Just use Avery 8164 (3 1/3 x 4) labels or print on card stock & place them in the necklaces. I ended up sticking my labels on glitter cardstock & tied craft necklace string around them. Your kids will LOVE them!
