I saw a post yesterday with some VistaPrint goodies attached that had some ideas for a "brainiac club"... I was just thinking about how nice it would be to offer something like this in my room for extensions, but now I can't find the post! HELP!!

TIA

The first link allows you to look at the pictures. If you click on Brainiac Club menu on the teacher's website you can read more information. Plus she discusses it more at the end of this post.

I am going to try it out this year! I made some things of my own in Vista Print to give it a try. I am excited to try it and I think some of the students will really take it and run with it. I am going to have to think of some incentive for them when they reach the "Hall of Fame."

I want to try it out too- I teach 3rd grade though, and want to create tasks that are do-able for my kids... some of these will be fine, but not all. Would you mind sharing your VP ideas?? And anything else you come up with. I'd really appreciate it!

RmAnderson---

Check out Mrs. Renz' site... she is the original creator of the Mastery Club (I just changed the name to "BRAINiac club").
She has a thorough explanation!

MissC83, do you mind if I 'steal' the name BRAINiac Club? I was going to try this last year, but it just didn't all work out. I am SO making it work this year, and I love the name you chose!

I am going to require the students write out their answers and tell where they got the information (website or book), but they will have to tell me without looking at their notes. 5th graders should be able to do this.

In order to track what the students have done, I "think" I am going to create a tracking sheet with 84 squares to represent the 84 learning activities. I have 2 binders (1 for boys, 1 for girls) where I keep student information such as parent information sheets, parent contacts logs, and signed progress reports, so I will keep their BRAINiac Club tracking sheet in that binder as well.

Those are my thoughts so far.

Hayleys_mommy---Feel free to "steal" the name for your club. I "stole" all of the tasks from Mrs. Renz...make sure you give her credit.


Teach4Life---I like the pic you used. Can I ask if you somehow were able to copy the words/format from my design and just change the pic, or did you have to redo everything? I would love to know how to copy and paste some stuff from other VP examples, but they always turn out blurry.

I had to retype everything. I hope you don't mind that I borrowed (stole ) your version of the mastery club. It was just to awesome to pass up!

teach---I don't mind at all! Just wondered if you knew a trick about copying and pasting for VP!



I just made a TRACKING SHEET that I think I will use to keep track of what tasks have been completed for each child. I tried to make a massive grid, but it didn't work.... feel free to use/change!

Another Question

This looks very interesting and I would like to use something like this in my class next year. Will you provide the web sites listed on Mrs. Renz's site or will you require your students to find their information on their own? TIA

I will personally have my students research on their own. If they get "stuck", I will assist. But, they should be able to work on their own. Most of my 5th graders are pretty savvy!

I would love to do this, but doesn't it take a long time to check their answers? I'm sure there are questions I would have to research myself. Seems like it would be very time consuming.
