Third Grade Incentive: Minute to Win It

Submitted by sara.stout on Wed, 02/29/2012 - 21:34


Our third graders have been working so hard the last month to ensure that they are on their best behavior and learning as much as they can. In order to applaud their efforts, the third grade team received help from two willing parents and was able to put on a minute to win it party. The students had a great time as they tried the various challenges and cheered on their teams. These students work hard, and finally they had a chance to play hard too.

Students at Barnett Elementary have been working hard this month to earn Brag Notes. When a student earns a brag note their name is added to the Principal’s 200 Club Board. Brag notes can be earned by making good choices, working hard in school, and being a good friend or helper just to name a few things. Once the board is full of student names we have a drawing for books and prizes. Here are our winners for the month of February. Thanks for making so many good choices Barnett Bulldogs!

All of the roles were based on real people who actually helped or hindered slaves on the Underground Railroad.

Think you have what it takes to face your fears? Mrs. Spencer's, Ms. Leach's, and Mrs. Laudato's sixth graders do!!! January's incentive activity for Barnett sixth graders was the opportunity to participate in Fear Factor!  Each class sent six volunteers to compete for the coveted Fear Factor Championship.  Participants were challenged to hold ice in their hand, eat dried squid, & drink tomato juice with herring chunks, just to name a few. Do you think you could do it?
