Golden Spatula and a FREEBIE!

 Hi! Hope your fall has gotten off to a great start!! I love this time of year with the leaves changing colors, cooler weather, and spooky Halloween!
Now that school is in full swing I want to ask you a few questions. Do you have lunch duty or take your students to the lunchroom at lunch time?

Have you ever heard so much noise?!!
Our lunchroom gives the Golden Spatula Award. The classroom that exhibits good lunchroom manners and maintains a calm voice level, receives the Golden Spatula Award for their classroom.
It really helps to motivate the students to be on their best behavior and talk in a normal voice instead of screaming across the room.
I have seen this idea on Pinterest and I am sure this is probably where our administration got the idea, but it really is great!!
The winners are displayed in the lunchroom for all to see!

Now a question about your classroom. Do you have students that just cannot keep a clean desk?

Does the inside of some of your student desks look like this?
 What a big MESS!!

I have something that might motivate your students to keep their desks clean and best of all it is FREE!!
Just click on the picture to get your free copy.
Put one of this little notes on student desks with a little treat(candy, stickers, reward coupons, etc.) and see how many desks start to be cleaned!!


Hope you enjoy using this in your classroom!
Before I leave, just a reminder about the Educents 2nd Grade Bundle that is on sale!! It is a great deal with great resources from many 2nd grade teachers!!

  4. I am very interested in how your school does the Golden Spatula Award. How does it work? Does each lunch group have winner?
