100% Bubble Gum Club {Freebie}

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

Every Friday, my kiddos have to take a selection test on the story we've been working on that week. It is a really boring test not the most fun thing to do, but it is something that we have to do. Plus, they need to prepare for the state test coming up in May. My kids were doing horrible on it. I knew they could do better than they were performing, and I could tell they were just not trying their hardest because, well, frankly, they didn't care. (I must say, it is hard to get seven years olds to care about bubbling in bubbles- if you have any ideas, PLEASE let me know!) 

So, one of my super amazing colleagues came up with the "100% Bubble Gum Club". 

Any student who gets 100% on their test gets to chew gum during the test next Friday. Talk about motivation...

Last week (before I had told them about the bubble gum club) I had 4 kids with 100%... not so great. This week, there are 12! I knew they could do better than they were!

I am going to print this poster out, glue it to a red piece of construction paper, and then laminate it. Then, each week I can write the names on it of the kiddos who got 100% with a Vis-a-Vis marker. They are our "100% Bubble Gum Club Kids!" 

Feel free to grab the poster HERE. I hope you can use it! If you can, please leave me a comment and let me know because comments make my day! :-)

Have a great Sunday!!! 


  1. What a great idea! My teammates and I were just discussing how our students are not performing their best on their weekly tests. This will certainly help with the motivation!

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. I love, love, love this! I'll probably use it for my weekly math fact quizzes to give them a little bit more motivation. Our goal is 40 in two minutes, I have so MANY that just sit there and doodle and get 10 in 2 minutes when they FLY through our daily practice!
    Not even kidding! :)
