Okay. I will admit it. I am a post it note junkie! I buy post it notes every time I walk into a store that sells them. No color, shape or size is safe from my clutches! Long gone are the days when post it notes were used for taking messages and writing down information.As a learning and development trainer, I use post it notes not only in my training as part of a learning activity, but also in organizing my own ideas in creating a lesson plan or a training event.
Through the magic of pinterest, I discovered ways to print on post it notes that I would like to share with you.
- Using a 3×3 post it note on word 2007, I created a post it note template which you may download the post it note here. I decided to use the printed post it notes as part as a post evaluation activity. The questions I printed on the post it notes are:
- List five things you learned today.
- Describe ways to prevent conflict in the workplace.
- Explain how you will apply what you learned today in sensitivity training.
- Explain ways you will prevent abuse.
- Describe ways you will encourage choice making.
- Further questions I have.
- Once I created the template, I did a save as and labeled it blank
- Using the same template, I did a save as and labeled it words. I then created words to print on the post it notes.
Once completed, I placed post it notes on each of the templates,
- My first try the post it notes crumpled through the printer.
- I also noticed the words on the post it notes were not aligned on the left side so I taped the back of the post it notes to the paper and I then measured the distance from template and tried again and viola!!
If you are not as obsessed with post it notes as I am, you can use the printed template to make copies to cut out and use.
So, what do you think? I love to hear from you.
