Why Superlatives Make Yearbooks Fun

Think of superlatives as the fun stickers on your school folders. They make yearbooks exciting by adding jokes and fabulous memories about our friends. These unique notes can make us laugh and remember the good times when we look back at the yearbook later on. It’s like adding a little extra magic to our school memories!

Being Kind with Funny Superlatives

Jokes and fun notes are great, but we must ensure no one feels bad because of them. Sometimes, even if we’re trying to be funny, someone might get upset. We want our yearbook to be a happy place for everyone. So, when we think of funny notes or jokes, we should always ensure they are kind and won’t hurt anyone’s feelings. Everyone should feel unique and respected!

Finding the right superlative for each student

  • Know Your Students: Begin by getting a good sense of what your students are like. Think about their hobbies, passions, and what makes each unique.
  • Ask Other Students: Let classmates suggest or vote on superlatives for one another. Friends often have fun and kind ideas about each other.
  • Ask the Student: Letting students pick superlatives for themselves can be cool. This lets them show off a fun side or something they’re proud of.
  • Ask Teachers: Teachers see students in class every day and might have unique ideas based on what they’ve noticed over time.
  • Think Outside the Box: Instead of just “most likely to be president,” think of fun and unique titles like “biggest bookworm” or “class comedian.”
  • Include Everyone: Make sure there’s something for everyone, from sports to arts to hobbies and everything in between.
  • Get Feedback: Before you decide, ask some students and teachers what they think of the superlatives to ensure they’re a good fit.
  • Stay Positive: Make the superlatives fun so everyone feels good about them.
  • Ask Questions: If you can, chat with students. Asking them about their favorite school memories can help you think of a superlative.
  • Look at Old Yearbooks: See what superlatives were used before. This can give you ideas and help you use the same ones sparingly.

The goal is to celebrate every student’s unique qualities, making them feel special and recognized.
