"Compliment Clips"

Sweet Compliment Clips...

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 4th graders will love to earn compliments and remove all 10 clips for some extra fun outside.  :)  Everyone should strive to give 10 compliments each day.  The compliments we give is also a great way to reinforce all the things I do around being a "Bucket Filler" as well.  

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.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I like the bucket too. It will be much more fun for my 4th graders to remove a clip, instead of me writing a tally mark on my white board. :)
