list of praise comments for student work

I'm looking for ways to praise student work. I am in a 4th grade classroom. I appreciate any words of wisdom and input on ways that I can praise student work e.g- a spelling or math test. (examples such as terrific, great work, well done and excellent.) If you have any that you would like to contribute, please send them my way. I am a male, nontraditional student teacher and loving every minute I spend with the kids. The lesson plans can sometimes be overwhelming, but I think I'm finally getting into a rhythm. This bulletin board is a lifesaver. Thanks to all the experienced teachers out there who log in and reply to the questions that are posted.

Stickers even the tiny ones are quick and easy. Draw a smilie face, draw a star.

Make up some fun ones, use old phrases or even foreign words that your kids will learn to recognize and appreciate. It's kind of fun, the kids laugh and love to hear you say them. Frankly it's always great to get a laugh. ex: Splendorific! Excellento! Wowerific! Fantabulous! Neato Frito! Wunderbar! Primo!
