I love giving out student awards in my French class! Celebrating student success is such a fun part of being a teacher! Yes, I love the AHA! moments, the field trips (really), and of course I love my subject, but my favorite part of being a teacher has always been forming relationships with my students. Celebrating student success with year end French awards is a fun way to raise students up and appreciate their strengths.
Combining these French award certificates with some fun year-end activities for French is a really fun way to send students off for a great summer break!
I think it’s very important to help students recognize their efforts, and it is always so great to be able to show them that you recognize them, too. Because student strengths are so varied, it’s really important to be able to celebrate all types of success.
Not every student may be the best at French, but I bet each class has an artist, a singer, a joker, or a good citizen. These French awards have a variety of certificates so that all students can be recognized. It’s such a fun way to celebrate all students and build them up for the successes they had in your classroom!
These French awards are really easy to use, because you can print and go or you can type students’ names into the editable form fields for a more customized look. Making a special award for each student doesn’t have to take a long time!
Students love to get recognized! I recently received and email from a student I taught over 15 years ago. She was going through a box of things at her mom’s house, and she found the French awards she had gotten in my class when she was in high school. I loved hearing from her, and I was so happy that it gave her a good memory of the time she was in my class.
If there is a special award you’d like to make, there are also four FULLY EDITABLE awards, so all you have to do is type your own French awards into the spaces provided, and you’ll be able to keep the template already provided. There are boy and girl versions of many certificates, so the awards can be even more personal.
