End of the Year Awards Time Saver Tutorial


It's time to start thinking about how to wrap up the end of the year. It's always bittersweet to say goodbye to the little classroom family we have created throughout the year. A nice tribute is to give students a special, individualized award that shows them how well you know them and their strengths. Bonus if you can personalize it with your Bitmoji picture! I have created a pack of 39 individualized awards that you can personalize with your own Bitmoji. This is nice because it looks like you, which makes it more personal, and it's not too cutsie or little kid-ish. You also don't have to buy a bunch of clipart to make these awards fit your class personalities perfectly. Here is the easiest way I have found to add your own Bitmoji picture into your awards.

1. Create your own avatar with Bitmoji

It's super easy and free! Just create an account at https://www.bitmoji.com/ and personalize a cartoon version of yourself. There are lots of fun ways to customize your avatar and make it look like you.

2. Add the Bitmoji Chrome Extension

To search for a picture and quickly add it to your award, you can add the free Bitmoji Chrome Extension to your Chrome bar. Once you find the picture you want, you just drag it into your award that is already set up in google slides. 

3. Print

Once you add the names, you print on card stock. And that's it! 

It's not near as much work as you might think to set up, and it's a thoughtful end-of-year gift. You can make your own awards, but I have 39 awards for you to choose from already set up for you in a google slide show. You just have to add your own Bitmoji. You can purchase it here. I suggest adding your Bitmoji to all the awards and saving it as a master so you have it year after year. If you think of an award I haven't included, just let me know and I'll see if I can add it. 

Good luck with the end of the school year!
