Everyone loves to be appreciated and rewarded for their job, however small it is. In classrooms, sometimes it has to go beyond a pat on the shoulder or a smile.
A teacher can give small gifts to encourage the students' works and motivate them .
I have also explored through Microsoft Office tools, where I have found something really interesting. It is called Publisher. And now I design my own certificates for the achievers in my class. I have found that a certificate always gives the student a positive and proud feeling of an achiever.
Just go to Office 2007 tools, click on to Publisher and choose your template to create certificates or cards to gift to your learners. Use your vocabulary and creativity to make a special gift to your learners..
Here are some samples of certificates that I designed for my learners. I can still see their beaming faces, as they received them.
