Shower everyone with compliment notes of kindness:
So what about specialised colouring compliment notes! They are a wonderful option for encouraging students to spread kindness, and come in both printable and digital versions!
Why are these compliment notes more personalised than a regular note:
It’s easy enough to physically colour in notes, but what about online classes? Fear not - this brand new style of digital colouring means the notes can be coloured in on-screen. This has a double benefit: students will get the same relaxing experience of colouring, without cross contaminating products, but with the added bonus of being able to personalise and decorate the notes especially for someone else. Knowing someone has spent time decorating the note and thinking carefully about that person wanting to show kindness to them, is what makes these so much more powerful than just an email. Once these have been coloured in on-screen, they can then be digitally sent to friend or member of staff to help spread kindness.
Other ways you can use these colouring compliment notes:
1) They can be used like reward coupons to offer students for good behaviour. They can then enjoy colouring the notes in and keeping them as confidence boosters.
2) They can be stored in a “compliment container” and students can take it in turns each day to pick some notes at random each morning. They can read it aloud to the class and select a student who they think would benefit from that note best at the end of the day.
3) They can be scattered and placed in students’ desks, on their lockers, inside library books and hidden in any other remote places that students might find them, thereby offering them some encouraging words of kindness which they can colour and keep.
4) You can keep a bowl of these in your staff workroom to encourage kindness among staff.
5) Cut and pin a range of these notes on a bulletin board for students to take for themselves or share with another student. The idea is that they can end up all over the school lifting spirits of students and staff.
6) Hand out notes to students to colour and write personal notes to others on the back of them. They can be handed out or pinned to a public bulletin board.
7) Set up a Kindness Club and send your members on a mission to colour in these notes then spread compliments and joy to others around school.
