Student PDM note ideas:


  1. PDM bags: Have each student decorate their own PDM bag. Hang them somewhere in the room and have available notes (i.e. “LOOKING GOOD” PDM notes – See Below).
    Offer opportunities for students to write positive messages regularly.
  2. Using a pocket chart with students’ names, have available 3x5 cards for students to use to write PDMs.

All Levels:
Have students draw names. This is to be a ‘secret pal’ for that week. Sometime in the next week they are to place a positive note or token – i.e. piece of candy, pencil, sticker, etc. on their desk.
