First, let me forewarn you. I have an addiction to post-it notes. Honestly, I should take stock in the company. I can’t imagine a workday without them. They contain my daily list of things to do, people to see, parents to call, etc. Sticky notes line my desk as reminders of what’s important to me for that day.
So, how can these little 3 x 3 pieces of paper with a little glue stuck to one side make a difference? Because they serve as little reminders all over the building of what’s important to me that day.
(Some of these pictures are ones I have shown you before, but in case you missed it, I have linked them to the post or lesson.)
An easel shows what students have learned after a lesson.
A post-it on a locker can help a school that is grieving heal.
Bulletin boards are visual reminders of the impact students can make.
A post it on the bathroom mirror let’s students know that they are loved, they are beautiful, and that they are special. Post it’s on doors share words of encouragement and quotes of inspiration.
The uses are endless and don’t let the post-it note’s small size fool you. They are more powerful than you think. These positive posties, as I like to call them, are the most sought post its in school. When I think of the post it, I think of reminders, and that is exactly what my kiddos think of too. But for them, it is not a reminder of dates, deadlines, calls to make, or papers to file, it is a reminder to them to see the worth in themselves and the love we have for them.
How will you use your post-it notes to change the climate in your school?
