What do your DCs get them for .DD must be the 'smartest sitter' in England -at least that's what every 'well done' sticker seems to be for or good tidying up.She also got one for 'sensible walking ' and was 'star of the day' for being the tiredest person in the class apart from the teacher !!

Sitting nicely on the carpet
Playing nicely
Nice manners
Eating all his veg
Listening at story time
Tidying up

And he got one the other day for helping his friend up who had fallen over and giving her a hug

Not reception yet - but ds2 is wearing a sticker from pre-school today. I've asked him a few times what it's for, and he replies every time "For me"!

Ds1 brought home a certificate last term for being "a smart boy" in his class. I never worked out whether it means he's clever or well-dressed. grin

dd2 in nursery gets stickers for 'good listening' and 'doing as you're told'.

In reception dd1 got stars (which also mean house points) for saying good bye without crying and trying her lunch. She is now in year 2 and has to get 10/10 on her spelling tests or get all her work right to get a star.

Ds2 once got one for "good looking".

Apparently it's nothing to do with appearance and means he looked at the board instead of round the room.

Dd got a sticker which said 'I sit still'.

Iklboo Fri 16-Oct-09 13:59:19

I hoping DS is going to win the prize in his class for most sponsor money raised. He got £163.

We're quite hopeful as DH oveheard one mum saying 'I sponsored him a quid. I hope he doesn't think that's per lap' (they were walking 10 times round their playground)

dd3 (in reception) got a mini certificate thing last week for colouring a cow hmm

Hulababy Fri 16-Oct-09 14:03:48

We give them out (in Y1) for good looking and for good listening. Good sitting is another one (in circle time generally). Also do ones for specific targets n pieces of work, effort, etc.

I don't understand why bringing money into school would merit a reward.

cuppycakesong Fri 16-Oct-09 14:22:15

Sorry, my comment was specifically for Iklboo

My DD, (yr 1), got a sticker last week for "good tidying up".

Maybe I should try this sticker thing at home......hmm

missmapp Fri 16-Oct-09 14:35:40

tidying the pegs away!
I do hope they are teaching him the art of hanging out washing as DH has never really learnt!

Elibean Fri 16-Oct-09 14:36:59

Oh, stickers work beautifully at home (as long as its dd giving them out hmm)

They were doing maths the other day using maltesers, and all got one at the end (they did check with parents first). dd was very smug: she got TWO for 'sitting nicely' shock

MedusaHead Fri 16-Oct-09 14:51:40

Elibean my DD says in her class they get stickers for "sitting beautifully" on the carpet. My DD never gets stickers for that though as she is always fidgeting or talking.

madamearcati Fri 16-Oct-09 16:58:00

LOL they are funny aren't they ? I still think my DD's takes the biscuit 'for being the tiredest apart from the teacher ' (DD's words)

gingernutlover Fri 16-Oct-09 17:38:37

i gave one the other day to the girls who put all the lids back on the felt pens.

oh and the children who said thankyou when i gave them their fruit (only 2 said it, now they all remember)

moosemama Fri 16-Oct-09 18:10:31

Lol at being the tiredest. grin

Ds2 (Y1) gets stickers and merit marks all the time because --hei- is a goody goody he is an absolute sweetie and is well behaved and helpful. [totally biased Mum emoticon]

He mainly gets stickers for helping the teacher, sitting nicely, listening properly, queueing up quietly and tidying up. He gets merit marks for sharing, being kind and doing good work.

Ds1 (y3) very rarely gets either because he is opinionated and bossy an independent thinker wink and now hates his brother as a result. [but we like him that way and have given up trying to change him emoticon]

For ds2 they are motivational, for ds1 they are totally demotivational.

one sticker for tidying up

also one sticker for hitting his head smile

southernbelle77 Fri 16-Oct-09 18:18:39

DD (yr1) gets them if she gets changed from PE quickly (they have a song about getting changed and they need to try and finish before the song) - since she started in yr1 she has only got one twice and is generally the last one out on pe days - needless to say that means she is the slowest!! Oh well, at least she is getting changed this year - last yr in reception she came out in her pe shorts and nothing else last year (well at least she would have done if the teacher hadn't persuaded her that all her clothes were needed )
She has also got them for 'super spelling' and for French and for being 'Gold bookworm'.

southeastastra Fri 16-Oct-09 18:19:34

on my profile is my favourite sticker bought home by my ds

southernbelle77 Fri 16-Oct-09 18:23:16

Oh I like southeastastra! Although my dd would get that quite often as she can put on the face even when she is completely ignorning what I'm saying
