positive postcards

My new year’s resolution is to notice my students more. As a new teacher, I feel like I am always rushing from one thing to the next and I forget to notice how stinkin’ cute they are. Besides, children thrive on positive comments and attention {heck, so do adults}!
I created these postcards/notes that I will give to my students when I see them do something great/kind. I could write all the notes ahead of time, but I really want to make them specific to each child, so I won’t. For example, when I see them doing something great or noteworthy, I will write a note to them that night and leave it on their desk the next morning.  Since I don’t have all the time in the world, I will only be giving each student one note. {I may or may not mail them to their houses… I can’t decide. I know that they would love to get mail… I’ll have to think about that!}
