Just sharing an idea!
One goal in my math classroom this year was to create a more encouraging atmosphere, and connect to students more personally so they know I care about their success. It is certainly true that some students are easy to encourage and compliment, while others make you scrape the barrel a bit, and others simply fly under the radar.
Sticky note encouragements will help you be intentional about encouraging every student in your class.
