Random Acts of Kindness - Activities ... We did this last year as a class, I think my group this year would like and be able to do this

101 Positive Affirmations for Students- Love these! I often like to close a session out with a self-affirmation. Fun to have a student pick one at random at the end of the session. I ADORED when my son's 3rd grade teacher let me type an affirmation for the day for the WHOLE year for the class. They started each day with that. Some teachers make such a difference!

Draw a maze on a large plastic bottle. Put a magnet inside and have the child use another magnet to get the inside magnet out following the maze.

How About a Tug of War? Making Thinking Visible

Making Thinking Visible - an excellent resource for promoting engagement and higher order thinking skills!

The Privilege Jar - This is an excellent idea for rewarding extremely good behavior and reinforcing that character traits you want to develop. _ I can also imagine a Consequences Jar.

Quiet Critters - when you decide it's important for students to be quiet, pass out the quiet critters. Take them away from students who talk. At the end of the activity anyone who still has a quiet critter gets a prize, point, whatever you use. cute!

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.
