Teaching "self control" with bubbles... I did this yesterday in my class and it was awesome! Bubbles Poppins, Character Lessons, Control Bubbles, Tipster Bubbles, Self Control Lessons, Schools Counseling, Teacher Tipster, Teaching Kids, Classroom Management
First, he blows some bubbles and, as expected, the kids all pop them. Then, he challenges them to NOT pop the bubbles even if one lands on the tip of their nose. Introduce the concept of self control and launch a discussion about stopping to think before you act. Dustin refers to it as a "bullet" in your year that you can refer back to again and again. "Think about that time when we didn't pop the bubbles..."
