Perfect Attendance Posters

Monday, July 2, 2012
Last year, my school had a "Perfect Attendance" competition between the primary grades and the upper grades.  We all started working on a certain phrase, and if our class had everyone there and on time, we would cross off a letter.  Whichever class finished crossing off all of the letters for that specific phrase, the students won a treat and extra recess, while the teacher won a gift card to Starbucks or Jamba Juice!  

These phrases are our 7 Virtues.
Some teachers wrote the phrase on their whiteboard, or on a sentence strip, but I created my "Perfect Attendance Posters."  I put each poster on decorative paper and slipped it inside of a plastic sleeve.  When my class had perfect attendance, I used an erasable marker to cross out the letter.  I also hung up all of the posters with a ring; that way when a class won and finished the phrase, I would just flip to the new phrase.  

It was a great competition involving our entire school; they would announce the winning class on "Tiger Talk," which is our morning announcements.  If this Perfect Attendance competition isn't done among the entire school, it would still be a fun classroom incentive, or a competition among a grade level.  Anyway, here are the pictures of my "Perfect Attendance Posters!"

  4. I love this idea!!! I think it would take my class all year to get one phrase done for absenses :( Attendance is not pretty at my school. I think I might try this for tardies though! Tardiness drives me insane! haha. Thanks for sharing this :)

    1. Thanks Katie. We had issues with attendance our my school too, that's why we really tried to think of things we could do as an entire school, as a grade level, and in our classrooms. It would definitely be an incentive to improve tardies too. :) Hope it works.
