For Summer School I decided to try a "student made" wall calendar! They went nuts, they were so well behaved and couldn't wait for their turn to fill out the cards! As soon as the calendar was done, they quit asking me how many days did they have to go to Summer Reading Camp! It really gave them some ownership of the new classroom! I loved it!
The top row is Mon. Tues. Wed. & Thurs. since we have no school on Friday.
The second row is 20, 21, 22 & 23.
Then the third row will be a picture each day of the weather. The helper of the day will draw the picture for morning work and then describe the weather with descriptive words.
The cards under Boy & Girl is for an attendance contest. If every boy comes to school, they will get one point. Same for the girls. Each Thursday the winners, the boys or the girls, will get $5 extra dollars for the treasure box ~ I am hoping everyone is a tie! Attendance is so important during Summer School, any little bribe will help! :)
