We all have students in our classroom who excel in every area of school, so it’s easy to fall into a pattern of only highlighting common accomplishments like All A’s and perfect attendance. Yes, those accomplishments are wonderful and should be celebrated! But what about the kids who didn’t make the honor roll, but improved a ton over the course of a school year? What about the student who wasn’t all that great at writing responses to reading, but could express more through drawing? Those kids deserve awards too and their unique talents should be celebrated! These awards provide you with the opportunity to celebrate those unique, creative outlets of some of students.
