What it is: It is that time of year again, time for end of the year award ceremonies where we remind our students of how far they have come this year and celebrate their achievements. My Award Maker is a site I learned about from Kevin Jarrett’s blog NCS Tech. He found this site just in time for it to be useful for me so I thought I would pass it on so you could benefit as well! My Award Maker is a free, very easy to use award/certificate creator. Choose from one of hundreds of great awards, fill in the information that best fits your needs, and print. It couldn’t be easier and the results are fantastic! This is going to save me from going to Lakeshore or US Toy to hunt for awards for this year, they are as good if not better quality than those you can purchase.
How to integrate My Award Maker into the classroom: At my school, we have a formal end of the year award assembly where students are recogized and celebrated for their hard work throughout the year. This is the perfect place to find an award or certificate for any occasion. Don’t wait for a formal award ceremony, tell your students how proud you are of their achievements and effort year long with class awards and certificates.
Tips: My Award Maker has a special section of Tips and Tricks for making special occasions memorable. Check it out!
