Reward good work and behaviour with stickers

Merit stickers are most effective when used as positive reinforcement for good behaviour or correct answers. Every time a child does something that merits a sticker, make sure to give them one right away. This will reinforce the desired behaviour and let the pupil know that they're on the right track.

Our stickers cover a range of topics, including animals, places, seasons, celebrations, awards, and more! We also have mini-stickers in a selection of themes – perfect for teachers to use as an immediate reward for a well-behaved pupil.


How to use school merit stickers in the classroom

There are many ways that school merit stickers can be used in the classroom. Here are some ideas for teachers and schools:

  • Rewards for good work and behaviour: This will encourage pupils to continue working hard and behaving well.
  • Use stickers to improve reading, writing and other daily tasks: This can be done by using stickers as rewards for accomplishing these tasks. Another example is if a child is having trouble forming letters correctly, you can use stickers to help them trace the letter.
  • Stickers can help with goal setting: If you use stickers to help your pupils set goals and then reach those goals, they will feel a sense of accomplishment that will motivate them to set even higher goals next time around!
  • Use stickers throughout the day: It's also important to be aware of how you use merit stickers throughout the day. If you find yourself handing out too many stickers, it might be time to reassess your behaviour management strategy.
  • Motivation: On the other hand, if you're not handing out enough stickers, your pupils might become discouraged. The key is to find a happy medium that works for you and your class.

Reward stickers help to promote good behaviour and hard work in the classroom, and they can also be used as a reward for completing homework or tasks. They are a great way to encourage pupils to stay on track and reach their potential.


Benefits of playing with stickers

If you're like most teachers, you love giving out merit stickers to your class. Not only are they fun, but they provide many additional benefits besides just enjoyment.

Develop fine motor skills in young children

One of the benefits of reward stickers is that they can help to develop fine motor skills. By peeling and sticking the stickers, children use the small muscles in their fingers and hands which helps to improve their dexterity.

  • Strong intrinsic hand muscles are necessary for tasks such as colouring, holding a pencil, tying shoelaces and managing buttons on clothing.
  • The peeling helps with fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, which strengthens a child’s ability to write and draw.

Sensory exploration

Stickers can be a fun way for pupils to learn about their senses. Children can explore different textures, patterns and colours through stickers. This can help them to develop their sense of touch and their visual perception.

  • Scented or scratch and sniff stickers can help to develop a child’s sense of smell.
  • Stickers can be used to develop a child's sense of touch through exploring and identifying different textures, such as smooth, fuzzy, furry or bumpy.

Confidence and independence

Reward stickers can help build a child’s confidence and independence. When children are able to use stickers correctly, it can give them a sense of accomplishment. This can help them to feel more confident in their abilities and more independent in their learning. This is important for all areas of their lives, including school and relationships.

Literacy and language development

When children are exposed to new words through stickers, they are more likely to learn those words and be able to use them correctly. 

  • Reading stickers can help to develop reading skills.
  • Writing stickers can help to develop writing skills.
  • Stickers can also help with learning new words and improving vocabulary.
  • Alphabet stickers can help with learning the alphabet and developing phonemic awareness.

Mathematical skills

If you use stickers for maths problems or processes, your pupils will be able to see the connections between numbers and operations.

  • Number stickers can help with learning about numbers and developing counting skills.
  • Shape stickers can help with learning about shapes and developing spatial awareness.

Help with stress reduction

When children are feeling stressed, a sticker can provide a much-needed break from the pressures of school or home life. This break can help them relax and feel better so that they can focus on what's important again.
