100% of Team Memorizes Mult. Tables = 2,000 points
Box Tops & Labels 10 points for each one (they add up quickly)
Various Point Value System:
There will be many opportunites to earn points throughout the day. Points are given to teams and students at the teachers disgression as she sees fit.
For example, one day I may give 10 points to a team that is ready for writing first. Then on another day I may give 50 points for the same task. You just don’t know how generous I may be.
Ways to earn points, be on time, be prepared for subjects and for school, line up properly, follow directions, team wins at goofy games, getting caught being good, displaying good characteristics, being a team player, being generous, and many other ways.
