I saw this amazing craft and knew I just had to do it. Can I just say that Pinterest is great?
I know we are all loving it right now. Amazing!
Anyway, I decided these would be a great homework incentive.
I thought about doing Homeworkopoly, but I wasn't completely sold on that idea.
I have decided that these scratch off tickets are the best idea.
I assign homework Monday - Thursday.
I will be keeping tabs on their homework with my clipboard.
Every student who complete their homework assignments all week will get to choose a classroom lottery card on Friday morning.
Homework Log for Index Card
After I printed them and cut them out, I added the small square of clear contact paper in the small square around the prize. That way I had a reference when I painted the silver paint and Dawn liquid mixture.
Then I mixed 2 parts acrylic silver paint to 1 part Dawn dishwashing liquid. I would never have thought to use dishwashing liquid, but it really works!
I had to do several coats to completely cover the words in the box. Then I glued the cards to bright colored card stock to make it fun.
I still need to make many more, but I thought this was a great start.
Here are mine. The bold font is Grilled Cheese BTN, the question "What will you win?" is Impervious, and inside the square is Chalkboard.
Here is a blank version for anyone who wants it. If you want me to send you the PowerPoint version leave me a comment and I will email it to you! I hope someone finds this to be a helpful idea. It was very simple and I think my students are going to L.O.V.E. it!!!
Pinspiration Linky Party
The Scribd documents were not working, so I have switched them to Google docs instead. I am overwhelmed at the response these have gotten. I hope you have enjoyed them! Instead of leaving a comment with your email, I will be able to get you copies of the ppt versions (if you want to tweak them) much faster if you will email me directly.
