Time to get students motivated with a fun incentive and teachers motivated with a sale!
Several people asked me about my Scratch Off Tickets from my Reading Counts prize board, so I wanted to show them to you!
I make several scratch off tickets for students to choose from: they range in prizes from lunch with me, homework pass, new book, 10 tickets, ring pop, etc.
I make 10 to a sheet, 3 of every ten say, "Sorry, try again". My husband thinks this is mean, but we don't win every time we play the lottery! :) They can choose a treat from my treat jar or take a risk and go for the Scratch Off, of course, they always go for the Scratch Off!
This is the favorite prize revealed! Most popular choices are lunch with me or full size candy (depending on the time of day they win it...if it's the end of the day, they take that candy, so they don't have to wait until the next day for their prize!)
I have a little box on my desk of "lucky pennies" and the students gather around to see what prize will be revealed!
YES, I promote 4th grade gambling! LOL!
At open house I make them for my parents with household chores their children can do for them (vacuum the house, breakfast in bed, clean bathroom, etc.). No, my students aren't super happy about this! :) But, just like for my students, some of them say, "Sorry try again". It's funny to hear the moans of the students whose parents reveal the chores and others say "Yes!" when their parents aren't winners!
I bought a large roll several years ago, so I don't remember which company I purchased them from, but this one looks familiar to me. They're not cheap, which is why I made my Scan to Win Tickets, so I could make as many as I want...just print! And they're on sale this weekend for 20% off, so for $5.60 you can have unlimited tickets and excitement to reveal the prizes!
