My students set their own personal goals each 9 weeks for reading, writing and math. When they meet their goal I give them a certificate with a pencil taped on to help them celebrate their great achievement! A simple sheet of paper goes a long way in helping them to feel good about and recognize all their hard work!
This file includes two different half sheet certificates: one for 9 week grading periods and one for 6 week grading periods.
I hope you enjoy the smile on your students faces when you give them this freebie certificate of achievement!
