Getting Ready for Wonka Week

I know it's not good to bribe kids with candy, but with 12 days of school left I'm pulling out the big guns!  Last week I started putting up the Wonka prizes one by one on the most unreachable shelf.  I didn't say much, but the kids certainly noticed.  The silence with which I took them out and placed  them on the shelf definitely helped increase the mystery and anticipation.  When the bowl (see through of course - very important that they can actually see the small candy bars) showed up on Monday afternoon they could wait no longer.  Today was day 1 of Wonka Week and so far it's been a success!

  1. What a fun idea! I do something similar my my kiddos. I had out carnival type tickets (that I found for a buck at the dollar store!) to kids who are on task, working hard, and participating during the day. They keep a ticket, and the duplicate goes into a bucket for a drawing at the end of the day. The kids love collecting their tickets and lining them up across their desks! At the end of the day, I pull out one or two tickets and the winners get a small prize. The kids look forward all day to those last few minutes of the day when I draw tickets!


  2. I love this idea and can't wait to try it with my 4th graders. Thanks for the free printable for it on TpT!
