End of Year Certificate

Hello, bloggy friends!  I wanted to link up with Linda Nelson and her great linky party...

...and share with you this certificate that I use at the end of the year.  I noticed that this certificate really makes my students feel very proud and happy about what they feel is their best accomplishment.

I also make a class book by taking each student's picture and putting in the sentence "I am an expert ____." (mathematician, climber, reader, etc.)  The students in the past have come up with so many wonderful accomplishments, things that I would have never thought of.  One student told me she was an expert shoe tier.  And I could have kissed the child who told me they were an expert problem solver.  Wow!  Don't you love those kids?

I'd love to hear your wonderful ideas for the end of the year!

Oh!  I almost forgot.  I wanted to let all of you know that Education World has started a really cool, new online teacher store.  It's very similar to TPT, but there's a special feature to align products to Common Core standards.  You can click here to get to my teacher store at EWE (EdWorld Exchange).


  1. I really like the idea of an expert book. :) That would be a great end of the year project.
