The GOLDEN Spatula for the class with the best behavior in the cafeteria for the week. Our custodial staff are the judges. The winning class keeps the award for a week. The competition is fierce (in a good way) for this baby!
Golden Spatula Award: Reward for good behavior in cafeteria, emphasizing good character instead of "performance". Spray-paint dollar store spatula, add stars, glitter and ribbon. Great way to acknowledge the quieter students.
Each day a new table captain will be assigned. This is a good way to teach leadership to students. In my classroom, the table captain will be responsible for distributing papers, making sure the table is prepared and anything else that I may decide.
