I am a BIG believer in celebrating students. I’m sure you agree, the workload they carry these days is pretty hefty, and they work their hearts out to improve academically, socially, and personally throughout the school year. Their efforts are commendable and deserve to be recognized and celebrated!
Whether you’re up for a mid-year celebration or are looking to send your students off at the end of the school year with recognition and appreciation for their excellence, I definitely encourage you to check out The Golden Pencil Awards.
This set of SIXTY student awards recognizes everything from content-specific successes in various subject areas (i.e. math, reading, STEM, physical education, arts and humanities, etc.), to character and virtue achievements (i.e. friendliness, personality, kindness, charity, etc.) to Most Likely to be a Teacher and Honor Roll.
And, if the award you need is missing, you can create your own within the included editable slides!
Each award comes with three printable options: a certificate, a badge, or a necklace. You can pick how you will recognize your kiddos.
Pair each award with a special pencil and you have a personalized, inexpensive way to celebrate each of your kiddos!
You can print the awards on everything from white copy paper, to your favorite colored Astrobrights, or go really fancy with metallic gold paper. The options are endless! You can even fill out and sign each award with gold sharpie to really make the award pop!
Oriental Trading also allows you to customize a set of GOLD pencils with Golden Pencil Award! How fun is that! Or, you can simply buy a fun set of pencils from your favorite dollar spot.
No matter what you do, your kids are sure to feel recognized, appreciated, and celebrated – and that’s what it’s all about!
