First of all, we changed the name from the No Late Homework Club to the No Late Work Club. There was some
earlier, but not in much detail. Each month, each student gets one Oops! pass per class. If they do have a late assignment, they staple the correct pass to it. It doesn't count against them. But a second late assignment in that class will eliminate them from the party for that month. It takes a little organization to stay on top of it, but we didn't want to punish students for one little slip-up. If students don't need to use the pass, then they get one PBIS buck for every pass that they didn't need to use. The PBIS bucks are used in our school store. They cannot opt to keep the buck to cash it in if they have a missing/late assignment.
The December party was cookie decorating and holiday crafts. (Someone else made the sign for that one, so I don't have it on my computer.) We ordered plain cut-out cookies from our head cook. Each teacher brought a container of frosting. A retiring "home ec" teacher donated sprinkles. We ordered a bunch of crafts from Oriental Trading. I ran off a bunch of coloring sheets. We had three stations of twenty minutes each - cookie decorating (and eating), coloring, and crafts. It was very successful! Definitely would do again!
We are planning a sports movie and board games for January. Do any of you have any recommendations for a school-appropriate sports movie or board games for large groups of kids?
Also, my Vistaprint linky is still going on if you have anything to share! Links to old posts are fine!
