The Letter Box: Cut out letters from food boxes before recycling them. What a great idea for young readers!

Great idea    pickles and ketchups--On Fridays,  place them on the board. Anyone who has turned in all of their assignments is a "pickle" so write their name under the pickle sign. Anyone who is missing an assignment has their name placed under the ketchup bottle. Pickles can "pick" a fun game or activity, while "ketchups" catch up on missing work. It is amazing how quickly assignments come in!
