52 encouragement notes to acknowledge hard work, perseverance, kindness, courage, and friendship. Nurture self-esteem and a growth mindset as you praise your students for doing their best work.

Students in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade benefit from positive notes as praise and recognition of a job well done gives them the confidence to step out of their comfort zone to try new things.

Receiving a note reinforces that their effort is noticed and appreciated to encourage good behavior.

Use the tracker sheet to record which notes you have given to each student.

➡️ Teacher Feedback

"I mailed one of each of these to my students to remind them that we are still all in this together. Some hung them in their rooms, while others put them in their windows for everyone to see. Thank you." - Bobbi C

Present a note when students hand in work they've put extra effort into or leave one in their book or on their desk to encourage them when they’re concerned about a new topic or activity.

While academics are important, it's just as valuable to reward kind and caring words and actions.

Notes have been organized into 3 categories to make it easy to find the right words to express your appreciation or sense of pride.

  • Encouragement & perseverance
  • Kindness & caring
  • Friendship & inclusion
