An "All about me" type of class activity. Great for the students to get to know each other as well as their new teacher. Works as a back to school activity that can remain on display through the end of the year.
Creating a Culture of Kindness in Your Classroom. The best way to promote kindness and caring behaviors in our classrooms is to model them. When we show our students what it LOOKS like and SOUNDS like to be kind, there is a far greater chance they will repeat those modeled behaviors. It is so important to remember that children watch their teachers all the time and listen to everything they say (especially when it’s not in a lecture).
