Post-it Notes

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I posted before about how in the past, I had the kids jot their thinking, strategy use, etc. on sticky notes during independent reading. In preparation to have my kids do this this upcoming school year, I added sticky notes to the school supply list. However, after thinking about it and posting on here, I don't think I want to require my kids to write on post-its during independent reading. However, I don't want the post it notes to go to waste. Any ideas on other ways I can use the post it notes? Thanks!

I saw a really cute wall message- Sprinkle kindness like confetti, and the sticky notes were the confetti scattered on the wall.

Maybe you could have your students jot down stuff on post-its to create group K-W-L charts when you are starting new topics. I did it when I taught first grade.

Students had 3 post-its. On the first one they wrote one thing they already knew about the topic. On the second one they wrote a question for what they wanted to find out about the topic. They stuck them on a chart paper I had prepared with three columns for the chart. We reviewed together and stacked similar ones on top of each other.

After reading/watching a video about the topic, they wrote one thing they learned on the third post-it. We would go back and look through the post-its in each section. If we discovered that a statement in the first section was not true, I drew a line through it. If we found the answer to a question in the middle section, I put a check mark next to it. (Matched the post-it with the answer to the post-it with the question.) Students could use additional post-its to add more questions. This helped to guide the direction we headed in when we were researching.

Sometimes when we were doing while group responses to reading, I would have blank chart paper on the board with different questions about the book. Kids would write their responses on the post itís and stick them to chart paper. Then we would look for similarities, patterns, general questions, etc.

Keep some available to the class for those who do like to use them during readers workshop.

I was going to suggest this too! Also, kids can write (or draw) examples of a topic for group created anchor charts. I've also used Post-its sometimes in small group reading when we've read a book that's a bit longer, for each kid to mark their place. They could have their name peeking out so when I passed out books again I knew whose was whose.

Sticky notes to check for understanding

You might want to have your students use their sticky notes for "Exit Tickets". When I taught 4th grade I made a large tagboard chart that I had intended to use for student comments after a discussion for their reading. It actually got more use as a chart for 'exit tickets' where they answered an open-ended question on a sticky note to 'check for understanding' before leaving the classroom. I also used this chart to ask them to show their work after a math lesson (eg. if they understood double digit multiplication using a specific strategy that was taught) or to write a simile or metaphor they discovered in their reading, or even to give their thoughts on how to solve a class problem we might have discussed.

You can create charts with separate questions regarding a given lesson and have students write responses on sticky notes and place them on the correct chart.

Students can graph their responses using sticky notes to build the graph.
