Positive Notes for the Teacher

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff

When I substitute in a room, I always bring with me a legal sized pad of paper. I take it around with me wherever I go that day and I write down positive things the kids are doing without them knowing. I will make note of behaviors such as, "Kelsey helped Meredith with her math today and was very positive with her," or "Dallin let Steven borrow his pencil when Steven's broke," or "Pedro was a super help to me today when I wasn't sure where to take the attendance." I then attach this sheet to my note back to the teacher and ask that he/she gives special recognition when the students return the next day. Teachers always appreciate the positive note back and students realize how important it is to behave while the teacher is away.
