Cute idea. Have student wrinkle up the paper heart (not tearing it) and then try to flatten it out. Discuss how words or actions can harm a heart and take time to heal.... Good first week of school activity
I've used this activity many times, but I love the poem. Have student wrinkle up the paper heart (not tearing it) and then try to flatten it out. Discuss how words or actions can harm a heart and take time to heal.... Good first week of school activity
Perfect for anti bullying next week! Love this idea: Everyone needs this reminder: "Before you Speak. Think and be Smart. It's hard to fix a Wrinkled Heart." Click to visit the original post. #education
This would be precious for younger kids! Have student wrinkle up the paper heart (not tearing it) and then try to flatten it out. Discuss how words or actions can harm a heart and take time to heal.... Good first week of school activity
I have always started the year with the WRINKLED HEART activity: Have student wrinkle up the paper heart (not tearing it) as students brainstorm hurtful language, and then try to flatten it out by brainstorming uplifting words. Discuss how words or actions can harm a heart and it takes time to heal, but the wrinkles NEVER go away completely.... Good first week of school activity

The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires "A Picture Book That Pushes the Growth Mindset" | Two Writing Teachers
The Most Magnificent Thing storybook By Ashley Spires. A charming picture book about an unnamed girl and her very best friend, who happens to be a dog. The girl has a wonderful idea. "She is going to make the most MAGNIFICENT thing!
Books That Heal Kids: Book Review: The Most Magnificent Thing
Someone can accomplish a lot more through #hardwork and #dedication, rather than by relying on their smarts alone. Educators know the benefits of having a #growthmindset, rather than having a fixed one. We learn from trial and error. There is value in failure. Use this book to initiate a conversation with students about the importance of possessing a growth mindset. #trytryagain #workhard #middleschool #readaloud #personaldevelopment

Making a kaleidoscope as a visual aid and a vehicle for discussing change. "The way we handle change is all about the way we look at it...While making the kaleidoscope, we can discuss, 'What things have changed in your life as a result of this change?' and 'How have you changed as a result of this change?' 'What are some things you do to help when you are feeling upset about this change?'" From The Creative Counselor: Coping with Change

From The Creative Counselor: Coping with Change" - Taken from the Child Life Council. Kaleidoscopes are great for distraction for children of all ages, giving them a different focus that what is going on around them. Making your own kaleidoscopes allows children to explore their creative side. Using them to talk about change helps children see concrete examples of how the world is constantly changing, and how we handle it all depends on how we look at it. Therapeutic play.

"We had one girl sit on a chair in front of a white board while the others wrote a positive phrase about them. They could not peek at what was being written. It was fun to watch the smiles on all their faces as they shared what they loved about each other." This would be a great activity for my Sunday school class. http://thetomfarnsworthfamily.blogspot.com/2012/03/youth-activities.html

Very powerful...these words! When it comes to mental health; these concepts are VITAL to keep going and trying to move forward with a positive attitude. ♥ A positive attitude; though very difficult to attain a lot of the time (if you have some kind of mental disorder); I believe is the initial 'step' in trying to make life better for yourself and get moving in the right direction. ♥ LOVE to all those afflicted with some kind of mental disorder ♥ ~From one who fights her own 'battles'!~
