Sparkle buddies: weekly table rewards

Hello all, I found these great shiny pompoms at target in a bag for $1.00, I am storing them in a Dollar Store container. I will have a small bucket on each table and use them as an incentive. each time the whole table is working quietly I will place one "Sparkle Buddy" in the bucket. At the end of the week we will count our "sparkle buddies" (see how I am sneaking in some number work there)and whichever table has the most gets a prize (stickers or such). At the end of the year we will make some cute crafts with them and the kiddos will get to take them home! Have other great ideas for using these pompoms? Leave a comment and the best idea in the next 24 hours will recieve my newest Gumball Counting Read the Room and Center Activity: Click the link below the picture to see the entire packet on TpT!
The first comment will also receive this new packet! Enjoy! Christine


  1. So apparently I'm stalking you because I'm the first to comment again! I love the Sparkle Buddy idea!


  2. Those sparkly pom poms are so cool! We used pom poms to make patterned caterpillars last spring. I'll have to keep my eye out for the sparkly ones.


  3. I really enjoyed reading your blog. You have a writing style that is really interesting.
