Prize Day!

Yesterday I launched our classroom "store" where students were able use their "Pope" tickets and the top part of their Gotchas as money to purchase various things. The store will be open at the 9:00 a.m. recess every Friday. Many students bought prizes right away and others are saving theirs for an auction at the end of the school year! The auction may include left over prizes as well as some bigger prizes. I will be collecting donations for the auction, so keep your eyes out for things on clearance and/or things your child might want to donate from their old toy box.

 Prizes include items such as pictures and laminated four and five-leaf clovers.

Stickers, clips, and lots of "coupons" for things such as: wear your pj's to school, sit in the teachers chair for a day, sit at the teacher's desk for half a day, no homework for a week, etc. 

Pencils, erasers, sharpeners, journals, and bookmarks!

 I plan on paying students tickets (money) for the rest of the year for doing their work. For example, they will get paid for coming to school on time, turning their homework in, and for doing their classroom job! If you would like to donate small items for the store, those are definitely welcome!
