I give prizes. There, I said it. I used to love making a batch of brownies or cupcakes for my students when they made particularly good decisions or achieved goals. However, my new school district doesn't allow teachers to give any sort of food to students. As I've looked around for alternative goodies, I discovered another great free download. At Mollie Johanson's blog, Wild Olive, these pencil toppers can be downloaded and printed for instant kid-prize-goodness. There are five designs in the set including these encouraging phrases. Dig around Mollie's site a little to find other great, free downloads like the matching dull pencil desktop wallpaper, an adorable weather-tracking chart, recipes, embroidery patterns, and printables. Once you have fallen in love with her free goodies, run to Mollie's Etsy shop where you can buy more of her designs.
