50 Post It Lessons
This pin board was inspired by a Studio DIY blogger who printed a Happy Anniversary message with Post Its to surprise her husband on their fifth year anniversary. This collection shows 50 creative classroom uses for Post Its along with a my one-minute video, giving step-by-step directions on how to print with Post Its.
Love this idea! (I often see similar activities for math, but this is the first time I've seen this activity used within a literacy lesson.)
What is the Question?
POST IT CLASS STATIONARY: Give students Post Its and ask them to draw self portraits. Collect, attach, and make copies.
My Revision/Response Post-its are both trait-inspired and--in this case--genre-inspired. I always want students to discuss their own writing intelligently, and this little "crib note" of language fosters really amazing conversations during writer's workshop.

MEMOIR: Take 6 multi-colored Post Its and stick them on a piece of colored construction paper. Students draw pictures on top of each square and underneath they write a little bit about the special memory! (Great interactive bulletin board that visitors will want to read)

Assessment Bulletin Board. This bulletin board would be a great tool to use as an exit ticket out the door. Asking students what stuck with them makes their learning generative each day. This idea could be altered to suit many classroom needs.
Grammar activity after reading "How The Grinch Stole Christmas". No link , but I think this would be a great activity for any book.
teachingtoday: ndrummond: This is such a simple idea I found online, but it is helping me SO MUCH with keeping organized this school year! I’m constantly making lists of what to do, this helps me. Papers have been piling up on my desk at school, I need to reorganize that this week. I may create another one of things to do at home….. Because it is SO HELPFUL. This is truly beautiful.

QUOTE OR LIFTED TEXT BOARD: Create book-related quote board - This could be a great culminating activity for a unit of study or novel. Have students take a pic of their board of stickies and/or put their stickies on a poster board, then present why they chose each quote.

LEVELS OF THINKING BOARD: Require students to respond to text using this " Three Levels of Thinking" board. Post It embellishments decorate each level. Perfect for Readers' Notebooks, too! ( Level 1 - a seed just planted, Level 2 - starting to sprout, Level 3 - rooted and blooming)
