In case you don't already know, I have a major sticky note addiction. Seriously, I use them for everything! I get asked all the time, "what in the world do you do with all those sticky notes?!". To be honest, there was a time when I would just toss them in the trash can, but not anymore! Now I have several favorite ways to repurpose sticky notes to help document authentic student work.


Sticky notes are my favorite teacher tool because they can be used in small group and whole group lessons. They can also be used during independent work, and the kids love them! They don't find them intimidating to write on because of their small size. There is so much you can do beyond just basic writing on a sticky note. Before you think about throwing yours away, try these tips. 


In this episode I share:

  • The 4 ways I love using sticky notes the most
  • Why anchor charts with student examples should be utilized more
  • How to use sticky notes for informal observation and assessment
  • My favorite teacher hack for printing sticky note templates when you're short on time
