52 encouragement notes help you to nurture a growth mindset as you recognize and foster positive character traits, hard work, and perseverance. Students in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 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.

Build self-esteem and motivate your kids to achieve more than they thought they could. Receiving a note reinforces that their efforts are noticed and appreciated to encourage extra effort and more positive behavior. Use the tracker sheet to record which notes you have given to each student.

Present children with a note when handing in work you see they have put a lot of effort into or leave one in their book or on their desk 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
