Last year, I made these adorable tooth badges using clear plastic badges and lanyards from Staples. I hung them by my meeting area and the kids could go grab one if they'd lost a tooth the night before or on the weekend. They didn't have to ask and then when I would notice that they were wearing one, I'd ooh and aah and ask to see their window (the spot where the tooth once was). And, of course, if they lost one during our school day, I'd make a BIGGER fuss, give them a cute certificate, and they could wear a badge. But honestly, it just grosses me out when they are wiggling their teeth and/or they have one hanging by a thread. Am I alone in this? Don't get me wrong - I LOVE when they are missing teeth. They are super cute but it's the PROCESS that bothers me.
HERE. Mine are for 3x4 sized badges so if you need to tweak them, you can download the non-PDF format HERE. I have a graph that I hang up near the badges and students color a square in the appropriate month. You can do all sorts of graphing activities with it at the end of the year.
You can download the graph HERE. And if you need to play with the months, you can get a non-PDF format HERE.
I also suggest making 2 sets because the package comes with 10 badges. Last year, I had some kids that
This badge idea has endless possibilites - I saw some in the Oriental Trading magazine that had "pre-made" badges for bathroom passes. Or how about star of the week, math wizard, good friend, etc?
