Culture of Achievement - TFA RGV - Picasa Web Albums - A way for classes to "compete" against each other. Specials teachers have their "top listed to make achieving a stripe visible (what does the class need to check off?

LOVE THIS IDEA: I picked a stick and they never knew who that person was until the end of the day.  If that person behaved in line, listened and followed directions in class with few warnings, they got a surprise out of the treasure box and their name went up on the wall of fame..if the mystery person did not behave their name went back into the box or whatever I had and it was never revealed.  FREAKING GENIUS!

The entire file folder is then laminated. A gallon sized storage bag is added to the bottom part of the file folder for students' work to be displayed.
