Are you a BIP?

Happy Friday friends!
So it's May 1st and the last day of school, so some think...I'm just the messenger but sorry little friends we still have 5 weeks of learning left! We are too legit to quit! At least as of May 1st! Got to motivate to keep straight!

 So hubs and I got to be VIPS to a concert for our favorite band The Classic Crime. We got to meet them, hang out a bit, talk, take pictures- all the fun stuff you know special treatment bahaha. Soo it got me thinking (as usual when I was supposed to be sleeping or focused on my workout) what if I had a VIP? or actually a BIP? Someone that got recognized each week for possessing certain character traits we have discussed in school. So BIP was born!

Basically each week on Friday if the student has not received any marks and has done their best all week they will write their name on a piece of paper to go into the BIP drawing. Once chosen, they will come in the following Monday and be lavished with all kinds of "all access" perks.

Some of those perks include:
-BIP badge- so everyone, everywhere knows to roll out the red carpet ;)
-fancy-fied desk
-box full of my special writing utensils at their disposal
-automatic teacher helper
-pick a free day to have lunch in classroom
-visit office to be celebrated
-free pass to not complete morning work- they might have something else fun on their desk
-new pencil, bookmark, and sheet of stickers
-they get to use the tambourine to signal class
The list goes on and on....basically a "mini-me"
Instead of a boring, normal nameplate they will get their name written directly on the desk with dry erase....D-I-R-E-C-T-L-Y....I know,crazy right?! haha

(don't judge the lack of creativity on the desk decorating- I was in a hurry and do plan to make it really fancy once I have time to slow down a bit- I got some good ideas!)

They will get to be BIP all week long! Then the process starts all over again.
These last few weeks will let me try it out and see if it really works so I can start next year off putting it into place or let it simmer and then "BAM" (Emeril Lagasse reference) throw it out there like it's the best thing since sliced bread!

I suppose we will find out on Monday!
I also have a nifty teacher appreciation idea I will share (hopefully by Sunday) once I get it all finished! It will include a FREE download!!!
Until then...
Have a BLESSED night!!
