Reward Stickers that Praise, Encourage, and Motivate
At each school term’s end, children eagerly anticipate and await their report cards. How have they performed? Is it better, worse, or the same as last time? Parents do likewise, recognising the future far-reaching implications of a school report. Teachers undoubtedly feel the same, since they can only record actual results, objectively.
However, today’s approved and widely accepted methods of teaching are a far cry from those employed in days gone by, thankfully. “Rule by fear”, “crack the cane”, and teaching children to repeat lessons and facts parrot-fashion are old-school teaching methods that belong in the distant past. That is history (no pun or dual meaning intended).
Encourage, Mentor, and Incentivise
Now, the fundamental focus is on encouraging, guiding, mentoring, and incentivising youngsters to study and deliver their best, for which they may receive a reward. A clear distinction is made between bribery of and rewards for children.
The former is an absolute no-no, while the latter is permissible, focusing instead on rewards for performance, development, achievement, and improvement. Innovative as always, Labels4School has come up with a perfect solution to this potential dilemma.
We are aware that words of praise and encouragement, as well as a literal or figurative pat on the back, are also highly appreciated rewards, effective in developing the youngster’s abilities and best efforts to deliver the desired results, despite not being tangible.
Tangible Tokens of Recognition
Fear of being guilty of bribery does not imply that all types of tangible rewards should be avoided. Tangible items are enduring, a reminder of a job, task, or performance well done – to the best of the pupil’s ability, which deserves to be rewarded.
With this in mind, our company, Labels4School, has designed and developed a great range of reward stickers, with which teachers may tangibly recognise and praise their young students’ efforts and personal achievements, whilst encouraging them to continue on this positive, yet fundamental path in their pursuit of education and knowledge.
Reward Stickers by Labels4School
We are proud to present our extensive ranges of stickers, all of them with a reward in mind, some specifically for merit, others to develop a growth mindset.
Teachers’ top choices include collections featuring:
- Woodland creatures
Others, universally popular, feature the following themes:
- Baby animals
- Dinos and butterflies (growth mindset)
- Farm animals
- Cute animals
These reward stickers also incentivise other scholars to perform better, because they also want the recognition that comes with sporting their own stickers, awarded by the teacher. Moreover, youngsters also learn by example. Wanting to be part of an elite few that stand out from the group is part of human nature.
From a very early age, little ones are fascinated by and take to stickers like ducks to water. They love and treasure a bright, colourful sticker. Later on, when they are a bit older, many may decide to collect stickers, a pastime that teaches them patience and perseverance, while they gradually assemble and build a collection.
Typically, a sticker is a round, square, or rectangular piece of paper, with an image or message printed on it and an adhesive backing that enables it to stick to numerous clean, dry, and oil- or grease-free surfaces. Favoured surfaces are sheets of paper, books, jerseys, shirts, dresses or jackets, school bags, stationery pouches, lunchboxes, or (amongst really young children) their own or someone else’s forehead or face.
Ready for New Years’ Merit Awards
We recommend that teachers get ready for the New Year by ordering their reward stickers for their pupils now, since 2022 is sure to deliver its own set of young, eager, and motivated achievers and those who strive to do their best, all deserving of a teacher’s token of recognition.
