Wiz Kidz

This is a club for students who are interested in achieving "above and beyond" the normal classroom expectations.  All you have to do is learn all about the topic, and then come tell Mrs. Wham the answers during your recess or SSR.  You can become a 1 star member, all the way up to an 86 star member!   Learning never ends - thank goodness!

The "Wiz Kidz Hall of Fame" will be posted in my room and will remain there until I am no longer teaching. Students must earn 15 achievements to be added to the list. Once a name is added, it will never be taken off.

* A special thanks goes to Mrs. Renz from Redmond, Oregon for this terrific idea. C
lick here to see Mrs. Renz's mastery club! Thank you to Mrs. Koysza for the Greenville categories! You can see her Curious Kids Club here.
