USING THE PRINTABLE FIND A STAR REWARDS
To prepare the FAS rewards, simply:

- Cut out the number squares.
- For extra durability, laminate the reward board and the numbers.
- Place a piece of Blu Tack on the back of each number.
To use your reward, place the 'Find a Star' board on a clipboard and stick the numbers over each space. You can place them in order or scramble the numbers. When your student/s perform well, say “Great Work!” and ask them to choose a number. Reveal what is underneath the number and say “Good job! You got a star!” or “Oh wow, you got a _________!” Remember to reward your student/s with a star in your teaching platform when they uncover a star.
