End of the year...already?!

Anybody else already thinking about the end of the year?
Surprisingly it is coming up sooner than later and I am READY! :)  

Remember that beautiful picture of the beach I shared...well it has been nothing but cloudy skies and rain since then. :(  Majorly bummed that my days of sitting in the sun and doing nothing have changed.  Now I'm being forced to actually get things done! 

Well, I did get my End of the Year Silly Awards done!

I love giving these out every year.  The kiddos and the parents really love them.  When I taught first grade, I let the kiddos vote for the friend that deserved each award.  They nailed it every time too!  This year, since I'm back in KinderLand, I'm going to choose the awards for each kiddo.  
I love that these awards do not require me to purchase anything to go along with them {unless I really wanted to}, the kiddos are not rewarded with food {just not my thing}, and I made the awards so that there are both girl and boy versions.  Now the boys aren't embarrassed to receive an award that has a girl on it! :)  I also made the awards full-page and half-page size.
All you have to do is print, write, and laminate! Easy!!

Here's a peek at some of the awards:

If you're on Spring Break, I hope you're enjoying your time!  
I'm off to get more checked off my 'to-do' list.  Come on sunshine!!!


  1. How cute and creative. We do serious awards...maybe I will be changing to these. They seem more appropriate for firsties!

    For the Love of First Grade

  2. I love the idea of having students vote for one another! I am definitely going to do this! Do you do this at the end of the year or during for a little motivational boost? I know I need something...mine are getting tired.

  3. I love these awards!! I just added them to my wishlist for the end of the year!
