"Mr. Stick of the Year" Winners!
Each year I sponsor a "Mr. Stick of the Year" contest. "Mr. Stick" is the technique I use to help my most artistically challenged students make their writer's notebooks more visual. The annual contest (which we do during the last three weeks of school) has become kind of a fun thing, with silly ribbons I give the kids who win, and with a grand prize now. On this board, I display some of the past winners so that you might see how amazing kids' notebook pages can become with the right incentive.
