Today I’m here to share with you an easy and practical tip that can be used in your classroom.

I love printing on sticky notes! It is so simple, versatile, and a major time saver! 


Some of the ways that I use printed sticky notes are:
To send home notes or reminders to parents.
To label paperwork with instructions.
To provide a checklist for paperwork that needs to be filled out.
Journal prompts.
Rubrics.
Cute notes to students or other teachers.
Label my post-its with a signature from me (so others know who it’s coming from when I send handwritten notes). 

The options of how to use printed sticky notes are truly endless! I love the simplicity of just peeling them off the paper, rather than having to cut each square out if you had just printed on paper.

Step 1: You can download the template here.

Step 2: Once you’ve printed the template on plain white paper, you will then add sticky notes to each square (as shown in photo above).

Step 3: Now that you’ve printed the template out, you can add text boxes to each square {in Power Point} and type your message out. 

Step 4: Printing. Once all of your notes are typed out, you will then insert your sticky note paper into your printer. The way my printer works, I stick my template in facing down.
