    This is a great idea. I began using it this year. Each child is assigned a week. They may use any medium they wish. They bring pictures of themselves and their families, favorite sports figures, singing groups, favorite vacations. They are beginning to be more creative. They are writing little stories, making posters. It has been great. All the children come by and stop to read. Makes all children feel special. They have been great to help each other put the bullentin boards up. I teach 6th grade and they love it.

    There is something else that I also do for real awards. I have a bullentin board that is entitled "Look to the Stars." I take pictures of all my students, then each month I have an awards ceremony. I award the winners certificates that I make myself, (I can put what I want too on them) and their pictures go on the bullentin board for the entire month. They all want a chance at this. My categories are best math, English, social studies, science, spelling and reading student, citizenship, accelerated reader, SRA,and most improved. There are enough of these that most of the children will win sometime during the year. They keep asking when the next ceremony is.
