    This isn't the first time I've posted on this topic. About a month or so ago I asked for ideas about creative end of the year awards. Everyone was so helpful that I decided to ask for some help again. I am working hard this year at incorporating a lot more positive behavior management strategies. One of the ideas I had was to have desktop signs that a student may spontaneously recieve from me to display for the day. I've come up with what I want them to be for but I'm struggling to think of creative names for them. I'd like to have signs for:

    Hard Worker
    Having Integrity
    Clean Desk
    Helping others

    I would like them to have more "cutesy" names than this. I was thinking along the lines of these examples of "boring" names transforming into "cutsier" ones but I can't seem to think of equivalents to the areas above.

    Talking a lot = Social Butterfly
    Gives many compliments = Compliment King
    Asks a million questions = Eager for knowledge

    Thanks for anyone who has some creativity to add to my awards :)

    I love this idea!

    These are kind of lame, but off the top of my head:

    Hard worker - busy beaver or busy as a bee
    clean desk - clean machine
    helping others - helping hands

    Pretty cool idea--seems you can use these as positive reinforcement rewards.

    I think one of them should be kids who go outside themselves &/or listen and act on your advice. e.g. kid who is shy, and you encourage them to try step out and show initiative in a certain way... and they do! ...just would have to come up with a cutesy name! ;)
