Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use Sticky Ideas with younger students?

Yes. These activities include many suggestions and opportunities for modifying the amount of writing or the complexity of writing. Ideas also include shared writing approaches that provide modeling and inspiration for younger students. 


Will Sticky Ideas help my student who struggles?

Yes. Sticky Ideas is based around a concept we call bits & pieces of writing. The approaches encourage students to capture thoughts on paper in small, manageable amounts that are less overwhelming for those who struggle with putting pen to paper. These small written thoughts eventually lead to larger output, but in a controlled and supportive way! 


Do I need any other materials to teach with Sticky Ideas?

The name says it all! Sticky Ideas generates bits & pieces of writing using sticky notes in a variety of colors and sizes. We recommend starting with a few colors of 3x3 unlined and 4x4 lined sticky notes. 


Can I use Sticky Ideas with other programs?

Yes. These writing activities can be used to enhance any writing or language arts program.

Fantastic idea to get kids writing. And so much fun using the sticky notes idea!!


I just love the Sticky Ideas packet. It seemed so simple at first but I’m finding more and more ways that bits & pieces of writing are adding up for really deep comprehension.


My child loves the sticky ideas packet. Not sure why we didn’t try this sooner!
