This document includes 17 positive student encouragement phrases, each on a separate page for posting and/or sharing. An additional photo of a decorated classroom encouragement walkway is also included. I hope this product saves you time, builds student confidence, and puts a smile on your students' faces.
Originally, I created these signs for the school hallways and for my classroom bulletin boards and posted them for the students to see on the 1st day of our state assessment to decrease student test anxiety. I had hung the encouraging signs in the hallways for students to see with each step that they took leading to my classroom door and also posted them on the bulletins boards in the front of the classroom as a reminder of how much I believe in them. The students smiled as they saw the signs and were motivated as they read the phrases. Before the test, the entire class choral read each phrase and the test anxiety decreased while student confidence increased. This is only one example of how these signs can be utilized, there are many times that we as teachers know we could post the encouraging phrases for our students.
