Digital stickers as a fun way to add to your class notebooks

Have you ever used digital stickers?  If not, read on to find out why you might want to give them a try.  They’re quick and easy to use, you’d be surprised at how much your students will enjoy them. Who doesn’t love stickers?  I remember growing up and being so excited to get a sticker on my papers – especially the scratch ‘n sniff ones!  The root beer was pretty gross, but everyone loved the cinnamon roll stickers. 

Kids today are no different – they enjoy stickers just as much as we did when we were younger.  Even if you teach high school, the kids still love stickers – I promise you they do!  I didn’t use them very often, but every once in a while I would pull out a sheet of the little round stickers with French words on them and the kids would go crazy.  They’d put them on their phones, on their notebooks, and the boys would put them on their foreheads.  It’s a fun way to remember back when the biggest problem was who to play with at recess.

With many of us going digital – and even those teaching in-person using digital notebooks – the role of the sticker hasn’t changed, although the stickers themselves may have.  It’s easy and fun to use digital stickers, and the best part is that they never run out.  Once you have the set of stickers, you can use them over and over again.

How to use digital stickers

The process of using them is pretty simple – you can copy/paste them into your own notebook, then just copy/paste them onto student work.  If you use Google keep, you can add them to that and have them whenever you want them.  My school uses Microsoft OneNote for notebooks – so I make a section in the teacher-only part of each class notebook, then make a page for each set of stickers that I have. 

It’s easy to copy the entire section over to each class notebook, so I don’t have to jump around to grab the different stickers. I’ve made some stickers and will be adding more.  They are a quick and fun project for me when I need a break from designing more mentally-intense things.  If you have a request for a certain theme, just let me know – I love to make these and if you’re looking for something, chances are that someone else might be as well.  I’ve done stickers in French, English, Russian, German and Italian – but I’m happy to add more languages upon request!
