Monday Made It 7/22/13

It's time for another Monday Made it! I just love how Tara's link party keeps me focused each week preparing for school.  This week I decided to create an added prize for my Sweet Shoppe.  As part of my behavior management plan, my students earn 'Smart Cookies' as reinforcement for their positive behavior.  Each Friday, students trade these cookies in for prizes at the Sweet Shoppe.  Last year I introduced the reward coupons created by Mel at Seusstastic Classroom Inspiration and my kids LOVED them! You can purchase them through her TPT store HERE.  I decided to add a 'Mystery Prize' coupon to my sweet shoppe this year by creating scratch-off reward cards! Fun, right!?
My inspiration came from Pinterest...of course!  Here is the tutorial I used to make the scratch-off cards. 
If students choose to purchase a "Mystery Prize" coupon, they will receive one of these scratch-off tickets.  Then, at their desk they will be able to reveal what they've one. 
Prizes range from a free eraser or pencil topper, to spending an hour in the teacher's chair, or getting your picture taken with two friends.  What kid doesn't love getting their picture taken AND getting a printed copy!?
 YAY! I won a pencil!
Thanks for reading. Be sure to check out all of the other inspiring ideas over at 4th Grade Frolics!


  1. Hi cute post! I did something similar last year. I printed then laminated but I used silver nail polish right on top of the lamination so when they scratched I could repaint and reuse! Your newest follower. Come check out my blog.

  4. Oh....I'll have to add the photo booth to my prize bucket!!!! LOVE THAT! My prizes are non-tangible...and that'd be a great addition!

  5. That is so neat. I have never seen a way to make your own scratch off cards. Great idea!!! Thanks for sharing!


  6. I MUST make! I want a pencil! Did you get my email about my toes? I posted a pic on my Sunday Smorgsabord post yesterday. You are goin' to want!

  7. I love the photobooth idea, totally adding that to my weekly drawings. My girls drive me insane taking pictures with each other all the time, but having it as a reward would be so much easier to manage. Thanks!

  8. I am loving the idea of scratch off ideas! Only if you could come to FL and help me make 120 of them for my 7th graders! (hehe)
    LOVE YA!!!
