Candy Awards


Last year I created candy awards for my class and gave them out in our room just us!
If you want to see the red carpet fun we had on the last day check it out HERE
The love was FLOWING and they were SO excited with their awards! 

 Don't want to spend your Summer Vacation Money on colored ink? You can also print out the black and white version on colored paper like this!

Now it's time for MY AWARD!

  5. We award ceremonies the last week of school by each grade level. Every child must get at least 2 awards. Sometimes that is very hard to give every single child at least 2. The awards are as follows: reading, writing, social studies, science, math, Fast on Facts award, homework star, sight word star, perfect attendance, A honor roll and AB honor roll, citizenship and most improved.
    My first year I did my own awards on the last day of school and the kids had fun with it. Thanks for reminding me to do something more personal with my kids! I love your candy awards.

  8. These are adorable! I wish I had a teacher like you when I was growing up. My 1st grade teacher was a nun named Sister Mary Andrew and I assure you she did NOT give out candy awards! I can't wait 'til you get to school tomorrow because there's a surprise waiting for you in your classroom! :-)

  9. Love this!!!! We have an award ceremony and we can only give out A Honor Roll all year, A-B Honor Roll all year, Perfect Attendance and Most Improved. The awards in your post will be great..it will insure all of my students get something. Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea! It's going in my shopping cart.

    1. Yes! I give the same award to multiple students when it applies more than the others do. They don't mind a bit!

  20. I love your candy awards idea!
    We give out certificates, one to each child, spaced out over the year. They're handed out at our twice-a-month assemblies.

  22. This is a wonderful idea! You are so creative and must have had a great time thinking these up. I hope I can find all of these candies in Tanzania... but somehow I doubt it. Thanks again for the resource!

  29. I have done this too for ten years-but I so love your certificates more:) Just bought them and will be using them next week> Thank you!

  30. We did these in my high school yearbook staff class. We called them the M&Mies (like the Emmy's), so these could work for high school students, as well. What student doesn't love candy? I will definitely use these in my classroom next year!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Do you know when the awards are going to go off sale? While I appreciate a good sale TPT won't let you make a purchase under $3! Boo!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love this idea. I am going to adapt your awards a little bit though and use them at our Blue and Gold Banquet for my former cub scouts. Until a week ago I was the Cub Scout Master and think these will be a creative way to make sure each boy gets a special award that night. Thanks for sharing.

  34. Do not give out a candy award like this one that a 1st grade teacher gave to a student.

  35. Came across your blog via pinterest and these candy awards are just so adorable...You are very creative...I hope to do this awards this coming school year so everyone in my class will get an award since we do not partake in any awards assemblies...Thanks

  36. Well Reagan Tunstall - you are a star and a genius. I purchased your Candy awards to give to my students on their last day of school and they were.........DROOLING!!! I am not exaggerating when I say a great cheer came from the crowd when the Fun Dip award was presented. They were literally almost levitating off the floor as each award was announced. I have never seen this much excitement. Thank you for making a wonderful resource and for sharing it with me! My kiddies even walked the red carpet/mat my assistant rescued from the Activity room next door. I quickly created a slide on my SmartBoard that read, "Happy Graduation Grade 1 - Have fun in Grade 2!" to put up at the end of the red carpet. My aid snapped a few pictures! Check them out at my blog:

  41. LOVE these...but I can't find them on TpT!!

  42. Those are very cute elementary school awards. I just think students hear good job or physically get handed something that lets them know they are recognized for something really helps a child's self esteem and they strive to keep trying and doing their best. I'll have to try these ideas.

  43. Is there a downloadable version here somewhere? I can't seem to find it. I'm a room parent and my teacher would love to use these candy awards.

  44. I absolutely love this idea. I've never seen these awards used before. I know my kids would love this.

  48. OH MY GOODNESS. THESE ARE THE BEST EVER!!!! I was thinking of doing candy bar awards this year, but wasn't sure I was going to be able to find anything pre-made that I liked. I don't just like these, I LOVE them. Thanks so much for sharing them for free. I am totally going to use them!

  52. Giving out candy is a poor poor choice for rewarding children. Do you value their health? What about teaching children the joy of learning for the sake of learning and finding pride in their knowledge as reward. What about children developing diabetes, obesity, cavities or allergies to corn syrup. Perhaps educating yourself on nutrition would be helpful. Sorry, your kids may love you but you are not doing them a service. I hope you take time to reflect and do some research on this issue.
