Stickers

When I test a student, especially a young one, I always reward them with stickers. This afternoon I tested a kindergartener and gave him one of my huge badge stickers that says "I did my best!" because he worked really hard for over an hour. That is like eternity for a 6 year old. When I brought him back to his classroom and he walked through the door, there was a collective "wooooooah" from his classmates when they saw his sticker. He then told me he was never taking the sticker off. It was so fricken cute.







Wouldn't it be awesome if stickers still made us feel that special? Ahhh, to be a kid again.

  3. Ironically, a coworker friend walked in today and put a tiny little sticker of a bird on the corner of computer monitor. I called it a Thursday Happy.

  5. That is so adorable! I interviewed for an elementary school counseling job the other day. I think it might be a really nice change of pace in comparision to the high school kids I have been dealing with for the past 4 years. Can you say attitudes?
