Teacher Notes~ Pick six students every Friday and write them a special note on their desks for them to find Monday morning. Keep a list and start again when everyone in the class has been done. But use sticky notes instead!
Yesterday was Thoughtful Thursday: the kids wrote something that they like about a classmate on a Post-it, then I gave them each their Post-it to keep. Today a student wrote a thank you note to the girl who wrote a compliment about him.
Today I wanted my students to reflect on their own qualities. Describe why you're a good friend in the flower sticky notes. It was tough for a couple and a few felt they were bragging about themselves!
