As some of you know last year our school started Leader in Me. We were just kind of dipping our toes in the water if you will, but this year we are going full force (especially because this year's symposium is in our county and they will be visiting our school!). Some of the changes that we are making are to our Leadership Notebooks. You can find more information on them here. We are changing up our tabs a little and one of the new tabs is "Victories" and (obviously) that is where we will place our achievements!
So my first and only (Listen, I've got a new baby. Making at least one thing a week is progress!) Monday Made It is Sunshine State Awards for the Victories section of our Leadership Notebooks!

We try and make as big of a deal as possible with reading these books because the state brings in fun voting machines at the end of the year, we have a Sunshine State Feast for our grade and our Media Specialist throws an amazing party if you read all 15! What better way to keep the motivation going than with Sunshine State Awards every time you read one of the books? I've already earned one! Hey, teachers get victories too! ;o)
Here are the 15 certificates if you use SRC Tests and your media specialist bought them for these books (which ours does every year)!
Here are the 15 certificates if you use AR Tests in your school!
Don't use either of those programs? That's okay! Here are the 15 certificates that have no test attached to them!
I just printed them off on colored card stock and called it a day! Now they are just waiting for student's names to go on them :o) If you are curious about these books, I always do a review of them including what foods we eat at our Feast based off the book, skills you can incorporate and much more. The first review is coming up this week and it is for Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman.
Hope you enjoy!
