Fourth grade is pretty much the first year when sticky notes become a legitimate school supply, and during the first half of the year, I find various sticky notes around the classroom on which students have written themselves notes, written each other notes, or just entertained themselves.
We use sticky notes frequently-- to take notes in textbooks, to jot down vocabulary words, or other scholastic purposes. Some students write notes to themselves like this:
|"Tell Mom about feild trip so she can go get perrmission slip in Friday write neat"|
Aside from the grammar and spelling issues, this is a legitimate use of a sticky note.
But now to the main point of this post. The weird and funny sticky notes. Take this one:
|"My mom will watch you. Got MILK?"|
How about a riddle?
|"You will find me where the little kids play, all day! I'm big and tall with leaves. good Luck"|
This next one might be my favorite. If you wanted to find a diamond, which strategy would you use?
|"find diamond at volcano or dig hard or go to South Africa find diamond"|
And last but not least, this one isn't a sticky note, but students often draw pictures of their teachers, and my students are no exception. We'll round this post off with a portrait of Mrs. Hildebrand, drawn by one of my boys.
How about those pigtails?
