Spark Student Motivation: Student Thank You Notes

Happy Saturday! January is coming to an end...this year is flying by!
 I think it's important for students and everyone for that matter, to thank people for the things we appreciate, but sometimes take for granted.

Think about if you get a gift or note JUST BECAUSE...how does it make you feel? Special and appreciated right? That's how I want my students to make others feel. And, I want them to notice and appreciate things that people do for them that they don't have to.
 

I lay out all sorts of thank you notes for my students to choose from. It's a great writing center: teaching kindness and appreciation, writing skills, and it's quick and easy!
 
 Want to try out these cards in your classroom? Just cut in half and fold. Click here to start the spread of appreciation!
 
Here are some student samples:
 

 Left thank you card was for one of the clerks that works in the front office. She thanks her for her smile and hugs...it brought her to tears when she read it because she said it was so thoughtful and unexpected. Right thank you card was for the teacher who teaches next door to me. She gets there when the gate opens and lets my early rise students come in and get started on the computer program they have to complete everyday.

Left thank you card was for me (love the heel). I appreciate that he notice the "extra" things I do. Right thank you card was for a classmate in my class to thank him for sharing and helping him.

 
I like motivating my students to do kind things for each other and others. I hope it's something they carry on, and recognize nobody owes us anything and to appreciate and thank people for the extras and the unexpected gestures that others do for us.

 
Cards created using KG Fonts and Kelly Benefield's borders.
