GMystery Person Classroom Management Idea: Choose a stick and no one knows but the teacher who that person is until the end of the day. If the mystery person behaves in line, listens and follows directions in class with few warnings, they get a surprise out of the treasure box and their name goes up on a wall of fame..if the mystery person does not behave their name goes back into the box and it's never revealed.
NEAT 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!

A teacher was talking to her class about bullying. She had the children crumple up a piece of paper, stamp on it and mess it up but not rip it. They unfolded it, smoothed it and looked at how scarred and dirty it was. Then they told it they were sorry. The teacher pointed out all the scars and she told them that even though they apologized and tried to fix it, the marks would never go away. When a child is bullied, the bully might be sorry but the damage is forever. Pass it on to your kids.

object lesson on bullying and hurtfull comments
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Pass it on or better yet, if you're a parent or a teacher, do it with your child/children.

Very fun!
