Now, I think that feedback is a WONDERFUL thing, just as much as the next guy, but actually providing written feedback on all papers that go on the board is quite time consuming. If you know anything about me (and from this post you just might), you know that I practically wallpaper my room with student work. So giving feedback on all of the papers would have me at school until the cows come home. To avoid that, but still have some feedback on each paper I put up, I have created these little tools to help me.

I use the stamp in the same way. Though usually I use it on papers that are going directly in their portfolio. I just like the look of the stickers more for bulletin boards.
I can not tell you how much easier life has been with them. Since there is only a finite amount of space on each one, my commenting has become quick and to the point. (instead of just writing on the paper itself, which I really don't like to do...what if I make a mistake and have to cross it out??? This takes the pressure off me ;) ) It also gives the students a bit of feedback, without having to write a novel. Since for most of the work that is up on the bulletin board has been through conferencing and we have discussed it already, these little tools make my life so much easier, but still help me to meet the bulletin board requirement at my school. And, they look really cute ;)
Do you have to put feedback on all of your displayed student work? How do you do it?
