101 Ways to Praise a Child - If your child puts their plate in the sink - make a big deal about it! If they get dressed and you notice they have matching socks on tell them they rock! Did they use abnormally great handwriting - tell them! You want to encourage these positive behaviors. The more you encourage them the more your child will want to do them.
Love this idea! Have each child make one of these. Give each child a sheet with everyone's name on it. They walk around and ask their peers, "What time is it?". Without "telling", they simply show their watch. Times are recorded on the record sheet. When each child has "asked" everyone, meet back and check.
