Hey kids! It’s back to school time!
In celebration of the season, I present the following contrasting school stamps/stickers for teachers.
Stamps found at a stationary store in Hong Kong: Work Faster, Incomplete, Messy, Lazy and You Did Not Listen.
Each stamp is bluntly honest in its assessment of student work. Note: the store also sells stamps bearing messages such as Very Creative and Well Done. It balances out.
Stickers from a school supply store in the US: Way to go!, Great Job!, You’re a Winner!, Wonderful! and WOW!.
Every sticker in the store is gushingly positive and exclamation point filled as these. The most negative sticker I could find said Good Try!.
With that, I say goodbye to the US for the season. See you in Hong Kong.
