Sticking to Success with Reward Stickers
Although there is a multitude of reasons for giving a reward, just as there are possibly even more types of compensation. Irrespective of the nature and form of each token, it is awarded for a job well done, a successful outcome, noteworthy progress, or an achievement. The meaning behind the reward is typically deeper and more meaningful than the item itself, be it anything from a sticker that says: “Well done”, to a monetary bonus or a certificate, card, trophy, or a complimentary holiday.
Work Ethics Earn Rewards
A reward serves as an incentive to strive towards additional achievements and making the effort to accomplish noteworthy results, those that surpass the norm and inspire future endeavours. Consequently, it is important to teach children to apply themselves in order to reap rewards, an essential work ethic for which they will thank their parents and teachers one day.
The Temptation to Take the Easiest Route
If or when the opportunity is available, taking the easy way out or the easiest route that offers the least resistance, while accompanied by minimal effort, is inherent in many mammal species.
Look at lions, for instance. A pride of lions would rather steal and consume a weaker predator’s kill, instead of sapping their individual and collective energy by stalking, running down and making their own kill, thereby taking over the kill and having full bellies being their ultimate carnivorous goal.
However, if cubs’ mothers didn’t teach their offspring to hunt successfully, they’d eventually starve. Reliance on regularly finding and stealing another animal’s meaty dinner – the easy route, the path of least resistance – could prove to be a fatal mistake. Free lunches and dinners cannot be sustained; only those achieved through effort deliver desired outcomes.
Teaching Youngsters About Earning Accolades
Likewise, little human beings should also be taught to recognise and set goals, apply themselves, as well as their natural talents and acquired skills by working towards achieving their personal and group’s goals, which is actually a reward in and of itself.
Nevertheless, a tangible token, no matter how modest, reinforces the message that it takes work, effort, perseverance, patience, and determination to achieve the desired outcome – success. Success also comes with the possibility of receiving an inspirational, memorable reward, like colourful, inexpensive but highly meaningful and proudly displayed reward stickers.
Little people should not be underestimated. They may not yet have the words to express their true feelings fully, but they do understand that the deeper, overall message is that a worthwhile reward, even if only consisting of a sticker, is earned.
Since our company specialises in the supply of exciting ranges of stickers, which are specifically designed for the younger set of scholars, we would be remiss if we failed to include something for teachers in our offerings. Dedicated teachers view their profession, the education of youngsters, as a calling, not merely a job.
Briefly, having to teach, mark books and tests, add personalised comments and compliments, supervise extracurricular activities, and pay attention to each child’s needs takes hours each day, week, month and year. Good teachers, who are passionate about their profession and the progress of their young charges, need and deserve everything possible aid that is available to make their time-consuming tasks a little less so.
Having a source, such as Labels4School, and a comprehensive supply of illustrated, fun stickers that appeal to children and can be used most successfully as both rewards for achievers and encouragement and inspiration to youngsters that are en route to becoming achievers is invaluable to recipients and their teachers.
Our ranges of stickers that feature comments like “Nice job”, “Well done”, “Super effort”, “Great work”, “When things got hard, you didn’t give up”, “Well tried”, “Keep it up”, “Way to go”, “Perfect”, “Wow”, “Good effort”, “Keep trying” and many more are designed to encourage, inspire and reward, as are teachers, who save precious time to attend to other aspects of children’s education.
