As an Ohio State fan, I have always enjoyed this tradition I began to think about our "lollipops Leadership lessons" (impact posts on this topic) with students and how we could acknowledge students who are "doing the right think and leading others".
So, after talking to my team of teachers we came up with an idea: We will get lollipop stickers and find a way to put them on the school laptops without leaving a mark. This was harder then we thought. Finding lollipop sticker was difficult. They cost a lot and had to be ordered online, so we opted to use stickers we could by locally. We also had a hard time finding a product that could be put over Macbook's and not leave a residue. We did find Friskit paper that seemed to work well (Amazon 100 sheets for $38.00). We cut them in half to fit the computer better. Although they did come off as times passed and some kids had to put new ones on. By the way, they loved the super hero stickers when you pointed out the "Super" power they had displayed in their act of kindness.
Overall, it was a huge success. Kids loved to be acknowledged and it was a way to show that acknowledgment each time they opened their laptop. It was very visual. Students even nominated other students for kind deeds we did not know had happened.
As the year went on, our team felt this had a positive impact on our students and helped them to focus on being kind, caring and lollipop leaders.
