I found this idea from Colleen on her blog called, Totally Terrific in Texas.
I used to write the word Compliments on my white board, and add a tally mark each time our class received a compliment from other staff, teachers, principal, etc... Once they earned 10 tally marks, I would take them outside and play a fun game.
I love the bucket I decorated so much more than just writing the tally marks on the white board. The clips were left over from the ones I bought from the Dollar Store.
The little saying was from Colleen; I just added the octopus, because the theme in my classroom is beach/ocean.
My compliment for all the teachers who have been sharing their ideas during their summer vacation; your hard work and creativity is inspiring to me.
