This cards are modeled after a system used at one of the jobs I had during college.
I know that my students frequently see each other being or doing good when I am too distracted with another task. These cards are a chance for them to recognize their friends for their hard work, and will help to build a sense of community.
The procedure is as follows:
-Students fill out card and turn in.
-I read and approve.
-I announce approved cards at our morning meetings.
-Cards are filed away to show to parents at conferences, and given to students in a booklet at the end of the year.
It's that simple! Enjoy!
