Creative Ways to Reward Students

In my last blog post, Creativity and Groupon, I discussed creating teacher postcards to reward my students for their positive behavior and academic success. I got to thinking how much I enjoy writing these notes to my students and how quickly they get to the front of the classroom to get theirs when their name is called. 

I decided to start working on a few new designs for next school year and just couldn't keep them to myself. I knew that I wanted to share this creative way to rewards students with other teachers.  I am very happy to introduce the newest product in The Creative Classroom's TPT store, Teacher Postcards: Rewards for Positive Behavior and Academic Success. There are six different designs included in this file and they can all be seen in the product preview in the link above.

Here is an example of how you can use the postcards in your classroom to reward your students!

Here are all the designs that you will get in this product. You can print these out on card stock and make your own instead of buying similar, more expensive products in stores. 

Regardless of whether you teach Kindergarten or Eighth Grade, never underestimate the impact that kinds words can have on your students. For some students, your words may be the only encouraging messages that they hear each day.

Thank you so much for following my blog! Stay tuned for more creative ideas from my classroom to yours! 


  1. I have to say I agree with you about the words we use, whether in writing or verbally. The most memorable teachers I had took the time to talk to me, to write comments to me that meant something to me. I will never forget Mrs. O'Hara telling me I should use my verbal skills to become a lawyer! Instead, she inspired me to become a teacher! As a parent, I would love to see meaningful comments like yours come home. As a teacher, I try to give my students comments that will help build their self-esteem, I like how you have incorporated a nice card into that routine. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love the Reward cards you created! Just added them to my wishlist on TPT. Glad to have found your blog via Fifth in the Middle. I am a Louisiana educator also.
