I created these for my intermediate students and they really bought into it. I started off writing them myself, but as time passed we took the time to learn how to write sincere, detailed praise and thanks and it took off from there. Looks great on coloured paper and taped to the entrance of the classroom door. At the end of the year, pile up each student's 'shout-outs' and present them. I have pinned a couple other templates - for variety on the wall.
Last day of school Teacher gifts !! Beach towel Sunscreen and Magazine! Great idea! These days are gone for me but what a terrific idea (good luck on receiving this gift all you school teachers in my family).
