Star of the Day

It's Monday....time for Monday Made-It! Monday used to be the dreaded day of the week, now I can't wait for Monday. Who'd-a-thought?!?  I have a daily Star of the Day in my classroom.  I wanted a new way to track who the new star is for the day.  Here it goes...

I fancied up a yard stick with scrapbook paper and stick-on numbers and ended up with a brightly colored Star of the Day Tracker.  I'm a little crazy about color!!! It also gave me a chance to play with the Mod Podge, which I have a love/hate relationship with!  I assign my students numbers at the beginning of the year, and we really use numbers for everything from Star of the Day to Choosing Caps to Cubbies.  Each day, I'll just move the clip down to the next number- this will be the Star of the Day for the day.  If someone is absent, I can just hop to the next number.

I also decide to make a poster that shows everyone's number. This is really most helpful for a sub, since my kiddos seem to memorize their own numbers as well as their classmates' numbers before long.  This is my very first time making an editable PDF, who knew it was so simple???  You will notice text boxes once it downloads, but they will not show when the document prints.

Check it out- it's a freebie.
