When you are bombarded with marking a seemingly endless number of student's work, don't run the risk of getting carpal tunnel - instead, invest in some fun teacher stamps. Not only do you save yourself the hassle of having to make individual comments on each pupil's paper, but it's a creative way to reward them for their hard efforts.
In school, there are plenty of different ways to shower your students with encouragement and support. However, when correcting their homework, sometimes a big tick isn't enough to make them feel valued. By rewarding their schoolwork with something as simple as homework stamps, your pupils will feel valued and appreciated. They may even look forward to receiving their assignments and essays back, eager to see what 'mark of approval' you have put on their paper!
Types of homework stamps
Forget about the unexciting 'well done!' and 'good try!' stamps of yesteryear - they've come a long way since you've been a student sitting inside a classroom. Now, you can get encouragement stamps that genuinely reflect your thoughts. From 'neat writing!' to 'love your work!' or even words of support such as, 'you can do it!' there are many different ways to express your excitement.
Another type of stamp that you may find useful is a 'parent signature' with a short dotted line. This is a simple and quick way to oversee communication between child and parent, especially when homework needs to be signed off.
Here's to hoping you'll never need to use it, but a 'detention' stamp is also another useful item to add to your collection. The red ink will send a strong message to your student that you will not put up with unruly behaviour in your classroom.
With all of these stamps, you can even get them personalised with your name on it to make it more original.
