You might use a sticky note to mark your page in a book or leave a reminder for a colleague, but these handy little scraps are useful for so much more.
You can jot letters or words on sticky notes and have students compose words and sentences without using a pencil.
You can have students add them to interactive notebooks to highlight key concepts and ideas.
You can create a reminder for a learner needing cues about how to solve a problem or cope with a challenge.
You can give them to individual students to mark, annotate, or react to assigned readings.
You can also use a sticky note to design appealing visuals and graphic organizers.
You can even design an appealing display to build community in the classroom and encourage the development of social skills (e.g., giving compliments).
Want more ideas for differentiating instruction and for adapting, creating, and designing learning materials for students with unique learning profiles? Check out my books with Sheila Danaher on the topic, From Text Maps to Memory Caps and From Tutor Scripts to Talking Sticks.
