Maybe it’s not only elementary school teachers who should be investing in teacher stamps but also those teaching in the seventh up to tenth grade. I don’t have teacher stamps but would definitely appreciate them if they came my way.
I find that praising a student’s work goes a long way. Simple things like “Good Job!” or “Checked” can actually make a student feel special and it lets them know that you've read or gone through their work. Just like anybody, students want to also hear feedback and would want to improve on their performance when they have the chance.
As an ESL teacher, I give writing prompts frequently and encounter the occasional misspelled words, grammatical errors and misuse of punctuation and capitalization errors. However, seeing all these corrections made by my red pen can feel discouraging. A mark or a stamp that inspires my student may well change the impression and even give proper motivation.
