LOVE THIS IDEA: I picked a stick and they never knew who that person was until the end of the day. If that person behaved in line, listened and followed directions in class with few warnings, they got a surprise out of the treasure box and their name went up on the wall of fame..if the mystery person did not behave their name went back into the box or whatever I had and it was never revealed. FREAKING GENIUS!

All about me bag: beginning of the year I did this last year and the students loved it Lots of great stuff including beginning of year books-making class hundreds chart!

First week of school activity-have each student decorate a puzzle piece to describe themselves and then put together on a wall. Great idea for creating a classroom community.

When a child is unfriendly in class, they have to pick a random act of kindness. This is a great tool for redirection than disciplining and compliments the kindness tree.
