Are you a PBIS school? Do you use restorative practices in your classroom? Or are you looking for a way to increase the amount of positive interactions you have with your students? PBIS states that we should have a ratio of 4:1 positive to negative interactions with each one of our students.
One great way to achieve that goal is writing positive notes! My students love the positive incentive of receiving a note to take home to their parents, sharing about their day at school. This spring-themed resource is a great addition to your classroom management repertoire. Many of my students-including some of my more challenging students- would work extra hard if I told them I'd send home a positive note. This often worked better than other rewards they could earn.
It's such a simple, yet effective, way to build positive relationships with your students, and to increase communication with parents.
This product includes 10 different positive notes, in both color and black and white, as well as two bonus black and white notes! Print them on Astrobrights paper for a colorful result, or print on white paper and your students can use their own creativity to color them.
I've also included a page of positive statements you can use for those times when your brain is stuck on "great job!" and you want to give more specific feedback.
