Stickers are continually a source of enjoyment for pupils (and teachers)! Prim-Ed Publishing has a vast range of school merit stickers suitable for every topic in the classroom. Our bright, fun stickers are visually appealing, with many offering commendations of praise. Pupils will look forward to receiving these stickers time and time again.

Our stickers cover topics such as animals, places, seasons, celebrations, awards and much more! We also have stickers such as Gaeilge and mini-stickers in a selection of themes; they are perfect to use as a quick reward for a well-behaved pupil.

Merit stickers are visual and fun

If you're a teacher, chances are you've used merit stickers at some point in your career. And there's a good reason for that! Children love stickers.

Bright and colourful stickers are an easy and effective way to give pupils positive reinforcement for a job well done.

Not only that but seeing accomplishments visually represented will help pupils feel proud of themselves and motivated to do even better next time.

Stickers can also be a great tool for classroom management and motivation in young learners.


Why merit stickers work

There are several reasons why reward stickers are so effective.

  • First, they give children a sense of pride. When a child sees their name on the sticker chart or receives a sticker for a job well done, they feel a sense of accomplishment.
  • Second, stickers provide pupils with a tangible goal to work towards. Whether it's filling up a sticker album or collecting a certain number of stickers, children are motivated to achieve their goals.
  • Finally, reward stickers are an effective classroom management tool for teachers. Used properly, they can help reduce misbehaviour and promote positive behaviour.


Reward stickers are quick and easy for teachers

When you're trying to keep track of 30+ pupils in a classroom, the last thing you want to do is fiddle around with stamps or write out individual notes of praise. With reward stickers, all you have to do is peel and stick!

Prim-Ed Publishing has a huge range to choose from, in bulk-pack sizes for added convenience.


Reward stickers work for any age group

Whether you're teaching Senior Infants or 6th Class, merit stickers will be appreciated by your pupils. Handing out stickers is an easy way to show your pupils that you care about their success, no matter how big or small the achievement may be.


Ideas for using merit stickers in the classroom

There are many ways that you can use reward stickers in your classroom.

  • Stick chart display: One popular way is to create a sticker chart. Each day, children start with a clean slate and earn stickers for good behaviour. Once they reach the desired number of stickers, they receive a prize (e.g., golden time, or a toy from the treasure box).
  • Sticker albums: Another idea is to use sticker albums. Children collect stamps or stickers throughout the year and place them in their albums. At the end of the year, they can reflect on their accomplishments by looking at their completed album.
  • Sticker exchange: Finally, you could create a sticker exchange system in your classroom. Children earn stickers for good behaviour and then trade them with classmates for different stickers that they don't have.
  • Personalised stickers: You can even encourage children to decorate their pencil cases, water bottles and lunch boxes with customised stickers.


How pupils can earn stickers

Reward stickers are an effective way to mark pupils' work, motivate children and manage their behaviour in the classroom.

Here are some ideas on how to use reward stickers in your own classroom:

  • Reaching a learning goal
  • Exhibiting great listening skills
  • Acts of kindness
  • Working well in teams
  • Following instructions
  • Tidying up without being asked
  • Participating in class
  • Playing well with others

Of course, you can tailor the criteria to fit your classroom's needs and interests. So if you're looking for a quick and easy way to show your pupils that you appreciate their hard work, reach for some reward stickers.
