Through this end of year activity, all students receive many awards from their peers that they can paste in a Memory Certificate Book and treasure in future years. They paste awards in a memory book, complete with drawings and autographs.
I've found that students really think hard before presenting these awards and therefore they are pleased, proud and value peer recognition. This gives self-esteem a huge boost and gives a positive spin to the end of the year.
This activity involves each student thinking about classmates and presenting them with awards for their skills and talents.
Little preparation on teacher's part, but huge rewards for children.
There are 44 Certificates for many different skills and talents, plus a page of blank certificates for students to be creative.
There is a cover, brief evaluation sheet for the year, plus a couple of pages for autographs and comments from friends.
Alternatively, you could use and distribute these certificates yourself, as a special end of year treat!
