Running out of ways to say: "Well done?" on your students' pages?
Here's a list of alternatives for you:
For an A student:
- Great job
- Good effort
- Nice, nicely done, nice job
- You worked hard
- Well done
- What an achievement
- First class
- Welll worth reading!
- Be proud of yourself
Best accompanied with SPECIFIC instructions for improvement - and delivered via the "sandwich" method: a positive comment, then the "negative," then finish with an upbeat, positive comment, e.g.:
"Try again, John. You're great at ELA. Maybe you can use those skills to help you with your word problems here in math class - think of them as stories. You're good at comprehension."
- Try again
- Don't give up
- I have faith in you
- Next time you'll do better
- Need help? I'm here
- You can do this, just practice.
- Extra time on this subject will help - I know you'll put the effort in to succeed
- Let's talk about this - together we can improve your grade - I know you can do this
