Here is the scenario: It is Monday, time for the weekly spelling pretest. You give the test and it is bound to happen someone gets a 100% on the spelling test. GREAT JOB STUDENT! My son was often this student but he still had to do the spelling homework for the week and the test on Friday. He was in the highest group but still spelling is easy for him. To motivate students to always do their best and to reward them for sharing their knowledge with me (another complaint of his.)... I went to Vistaprint and created this:
YEP! It's a get out of jail free card!! Uh... I mean a get out of homework and a test card.I actually stole ..er... borrowed this design from another teacher. (If this is yours please let me know!) This is one of my later creations... see the difference that advanced editing button makes? And it is free to use. Such a pretty little business card. The lucky student will take his incomplete homework and blank spelling test and staple this card to it. Then he hands it in just like all of my other students. Said lucky student then receives full credit for the homework and test. Easy for me to grade and a great reward for them.
I have created a page titled Vistaprint Creations which host links to all my blogs on this subject and pictures. I hope this will help you as you create and share your own items from Vistaprints.
