Video Tutorial: printing on sticky notes

May 22, 2011

So, in my feminine vanity, I freaked out because my arms are on camera and they look weird at that angle! But I told myself to get over it and post it anyways. This tutorial shows how to prepare the sticky notes for printing. I shared a couple of sticky note files last week and have plans to make more this summer. I’ve had some questions on printing on the notes themselves, so I hope this is of help! The basic sticky note template can be found at the end of this post.

PS…This was filmed using an IPEVO camera. 🙂

    Love the new video. I like the new format. I didn't know you could make videos with photo bucket. Oh, and your arms don't look weird.

    I have a pc! I have tried zamzar to upload my files. I have tried cutepdf but I have no idea how it works. Once I download it disappears. I have read that you go to the print option and it should show up there but I never see it. Do you have another one that I could try. I am sorry I really don't mean to bother you

  • Jennifer Gibson July 16, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    I do this all of the time! I print my rubrics on post its. It saves a ton of time and paper when I am scoring!

  • Linda May 2, 2012 at 12:19 am

    Thanks for sharing! I was wondering how to print on sticky notes.

  • Linda May 2, 2012 at 3:00 am

    Kristen…I tried printing out some sticky notes using the template. When I went to print, the template lines appeared on my sticky notes. What am I not doing?

  • John Vonn March 15, 2013 at 6:38 am

    This is a wonderful blog.
    Thank for share this blog………………………

    • Ok, this is nothing major but it has really sped up my planning time in @planbookcom!
Did you know you can navigate from lesson to lesson with arrows on the right and left? It is SO much faster than double-clicking in and out of lesson boxes!!
This is probably one of those things everyone knows except me...but I wanted to share just in case!

    • Three days of school, three books read for #classroombookaday!
This has already become a highlight of our day and I love this bonding time with my new sweet fourth graders ❤️
Next week, we will start discussing the themes and character traits we encounter during our daily reads, thanks to the brilliant @headoverheelsforteaching‘s resources!
Have you started #classroombookaday again this year? If you are new to the concept you must check out @heisereads who developed this...she has tons of book recs and ideas!!

    • Three days of school and I STILL have a couple of unfinished areas. This whiteboard isn’t hung on the wall, my drawers are only partially labeled, and I have piles of things on the floor to put away BUT...
The first days of school have been absolutely awesome with my new students!!!
I really think it’s SO hard for a type A teacher to learn to let things take more time in the summer away from the classroom. I have been working at it for a few years now and I think I’m finally making some progress.
My room isn’t completely ready for the new year but I definitely am ❤️

    • Sharing a quick Google Sheets tip!
If you are using the checkbox feature and working with a large list, there is an easy way to uncheck all your boxes AT ONCE when you are done with your list!
Click at the top of the column where your check boxes are located (swipe to see). This will select the whole column.
Then click your space bar...this will automatically uncheck all of your boxes at once! You can also check off large groups of checkboxes using this same tip.
I used this feature while printing off the covers for our read alouds saved me a ton of time!

    • How many days do you get for classroom setup?
We have our one day coming up on Tuesday...and I have a zillion things to finish. Most parts are almost done, but there are stacks of things on the floor everywhere (swipe to see) 😬
