Spark Student Motivation: Customized Stamps

I know most of us are now in full swing this school year, so let's share some motivational tips to make it the best year for all of us!
 I LOVE to spark my students' motivation with my customized stamps!
I started my collection about 8 years ago (before I had purchased all my cute fonts). I have a couple more I still need to add, but you'd be surprised what these stamps do for my students!


   I've been dancing on desks since my first year teaching...gets their attention for sure! I decided to make a stamp so they could remember the moment we celebrated something they did in our classroom!
**(This is definitely the favorite stamp!)**
 
 
At first, people think the "Who Are You?" stamp is for no-name papers, but it's actually for students who are so incredible I can't believe they're only in 5th grade or they've achieved something they've never been able to do!


Think about it...how would you feel if someone told you that "you were dangerous"? Pretty awesome, right? We use that saying all the time in our classroom when anyone has a really deep or thought provoking answer that wows everyone.
 
 

Here is my collection...these stamps definitely make both my students and me excited to use them!

I bought several of them when Office Depot had a buy one stamp, get one stamp free special. They have 25% off on their stamps quite often, check their ad for coupons. Best part: they can make them right there in the store in minutes!! AND...they're self-inking! Whoop Whoop! :)

**This could also be done with labels if you don't want to buy a customized stamp...just as effective and exciting for your students!!

I hope you had a wonderful week! Please link up any lessons, ideas, tips, tricks, incentives, ANYTHING you do get your students motivated or excited!

  3. Your stamps are great. I have a few, but I don't use them often enough. I need to put them in easy reach instead of in a drawer! Love the "dancing on the desk" pic!!

  7. I love the stamp idea! I know I have several "old school" stamps I bust out every now again if the kids are rocking something and I let them stamp their own work -- You would think it was the BEST thing ever! Sometimes, you just need a smile and a stamp! I'm going to be keeping an eye out for some coupons or Groupons so I can make a few of these for myself!

    Looks like a fun start to the year!
