Student Shout Outs for Elementary Classrooms: Free Resource

We all love being recognized for our accomplishments and children are no exception! In fact, if we praise children from a very young age, it will build confidence in all aspects of learning!

In the corner of my classroom, I have a Student Shout Out bucket.

Each year I have a discussion on the importance of recognizing outstanding friends in an anonymous way. We discuss sharing positive statements and compliments about each other.

Of course, I need to work in that it’s not just about writing what a great friend someone is or that you like their cool shoes  โ€” it’s about complimenting your friend for something they did for you {or others} that made you happy to be their friend.

Immediately, your students will think of a million different things they can write about! We take a few moments at the end of class each day to read the notes.

Students beam with pride when they hear about the kind things said about them!

  1. Vegas?? Lucky! Have fun! I love the "student shouts outs"! We have a gratitude board, but I like the idea of it being anonymous. I can picture having Friday afternoons to read them! It would be so much fun!

    1. Thanks! That's exactly how we ended our week this week. The kids loved the attention and I think it motivated the rest of the group to do better ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What a great post! I am so glad to have found gumball behavior because I am thinking of having a candyland themed classroom next year so I'm trying to stock up on ideas! Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚
