You want to commemorate the end of the year, but awards can get costly! And how do you avoid the superlatives that invariably leave someone feeling left out or inferior? Paper plate awards are your answer! I designed these to fit onto paper plates that are sized 8.6 inches across. A pack of 20 in my school colors is $1.00 at my local dollar store. This 30 page file includes a wide variety of awards. Some are related to content areas (English Awesomeness), and some are more general (Ray of Sunshine Award, Busy Bee Award), so that you can find an award that fits the wide variety of personalities and learners in your classroom. Since the word “best” is intentionally avoided, more than one child can receive each award. There’s even a blank award for those moments that are special to only you and your kids (such as “Quote of the Year” for a practiced response or funny inside joke). I hope you enjoy these paper plate awards!
