All of the 3rd and 4th grade students in my school are encouraged to practice reading and math skills on Study Island (a web-based program). They have to hit certain goals to attend special dance parties or events throughout the school year. I decided to take it one step further for my hard working kiddos. I told them that I would buy pizza for anyone who received all of the blue ribbons for reading (since I am departmentalized). Well, several kiddos rose to the occasion, and now I'm hosting a little shindig to celebrate! I hope you can use this with your own kiddos! I included several different versions... in case you just teach reading or math... or in case you are self-contained and want your kiddos to reach both goals! Enjoy!
