For reference- I am writing this post in the middle of a pandemic! Schools across the world are closing out the year virtually. There has been such a lack of closure in this school year that I really wanted to celebrate my students, even if only virtually!
Last year when I taught first grade, I made some editable Bitmoji awards and my students had a FIT!!! We used cheap red tableclothes and taped it to the floor to make a red carpet. I even pulled up a Hollywood theme on my SmartBoard and took cute pictures as they walked up to our class stage.
This year, I moved up to 7th grade. I added more awards and created the awards with a Google Slides option. I presented these in a Google Meet for my homeroom, but I also loaded them into Google Classroom so that those who did not attend the live video could also enjoy them. This also allows students to print them out if they wish. One teacher who purchased these told me she was mailing them to her class- how thoughtful!
These are available in my TPT– editable for both PPT and Google Slides. There are a total of 38 awards with a full list under the description. It was such a fun way to celebrate my students and brought a little closure to such a bizarre school year. How are you celebrating students during these unprecedented times?
