This year students in P.E. have an opportunity to earn a medal to be proud of and wear throughout the building for one week. All students know the expectations of being prepared, being safe movers, and displaying positive sportsmanship during each class. However, when there is a student that "impresses me" or "stands out" at the end of class I recognize them. Students are told it is an award they have to earn. Otherwise, I feel it will mean nothing. Also, students know they can earn the award more than once! Again, establishing the benefits of perseverance, commitment, consistency, responsibility, and hard work.
