Say Goodbye to the Prize Box! {& a Freebie!}

Well here I am, 1 more day closer to having 23 kiddos streaming through my door! Augh!!! {that was a scream of panic} I'm really excited to meet my new firsties BUT I have soooo much to do yet!

 Does anyone else really dislike trying to keep up with the "Prize Box"? Well, I decided to say goodbye to that thing throw it in the trash can!!! I sometimes have lil extra incentives where the kids can earn lunch with the teacher or something similar & they LOVE it! So I've decided that I'm going to make up a whole binder full of prize passes, such as: No Homework, Wear a Hat, No Shoes, etc... I don't have it finished yet but, I did start on some of the passes. And OoOoOo, they are turning out so cute that I just had to take a little break & share my first one with you! Just click the pic!!!

Do you have any suggestions for incentives/prize passes??? I'd love to hear them-just leave me a lil comment! I'll be happy to make them up & post more freebies! Happy Thursday friends!

    It might give you a few ideas of your own!

    and my post about it:
