I'm probably cheating for this month's Monday Made It, but I've spent a lot of time making signs and things for various reasons. I was particularly proud of this group of signs and invites...
Assignment completion is a big deal at the middle school level. When my fifth grade was at the intermediate school, we were able to have a weekly time at the end of Friday to reward all fifth graders who were caught up on work. Everyone would gather in the gym to play dodgeball while those who weren't caught up had to stay in the room and finish. It was highly motivating.
Unfortunately, we don't have the same opportunity at the middle school. Scheduling just didn't allow it this year. And the students started to not care if their work was in or not.
So I had a brilliant (I think) idea! The No Late Homework Club. We gave students a fresh start and told them that if they had no late homework for the rest of September, they would be invited to the end-of-month movie and snack party. Things started to turn around! We ended up having half of the students qualify!
Here are the invites that I made for each student:
And the signs for their lockers:
