First, blow some bubbles.  As expected, the children pop them. Then challenge them NOT to 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. You can refer back to this again and again.  "Think about that time when we didn't pop the bubbles..."

Teaching Acceptance

Getting to know you activity. This is perfect to go over bubble maps at the beginning of the year. :)

Cute idea to use with Kevin Henke's Chrysanthemum. I typically read Chrysanthemum the first week, talk about bullying/unkind words.

Classroom Management/ Reward Idea - pick a stick and class doesn't know who that person is until the end of the day. If that person behaved in line, listened and followed directions in class with few warnings, they get a reward. If the mystery person doesn't behave their name goes back into the container.

Pull a name stick to be the "mystery person" for the day. At the end of the day the "mystery person" gets a reward if they were well-behaved and they go on the "wall of fame." If not, the name is put back to try again, but not revealed.

We all have a student that seems to set the temperature for the rest of the class. That student who doesn’t respond to your Tier 1 classroom behavior plan. I have created charts for such a student that might need to work on specific behavior goals.

The piggies in Mrs. McNeal's class learn the difference between tattling and informing an adult in an emergency. After enduring a morning of students "squealing" on one another, the teacher explains that kids should try to work out their kid-sized problems themselves, but they should seek help when a more serious situation arises

Don't Squeal Unless It's a BIG Deal.First saw this book at a professional development last year. Great book to use if you are experiencing a problem with "tattletales" in your classroom. *I NEED THIS FOR MY CLASSROOM*
