    The Crumpled Piece of Paper

    Lesson that helps students understand that fair doesn't always mean 'same thing for everyone'. Amazing. Doing this the first week of school!

    Shut the Door and Teach: Getting Difficult Kids on Your Side --- THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ANY TEACHER OF ANY AGE

    Another powerful activity (similar to the wrinkling of the paper) to demonstrate that words do hurt.

    Toothpaste Squirt Lesson for teaching kids not to be rude and put down others....OMG I did this on the first day of school and it really stuck with the kids

    Which is why my students get to be "teachers" on a regular basis. I sit at my desk and they teach one question.

    Cool website!! Just type in a bunch of words and it makes it into a picture!

    Teacher Phobias

    This lesson plan is SERIOUSLY AMAZING.How to erase meanness. This is relevant no matter the grade level, and it's so hard to find a way to teach these lessons effectively. Such a GREAT idea!

    Awesome teacher gift! Love the gold foil!

    good idea


    This is a perfect way for students to quietly show the teacher where they're at with their work (and if they need help).

    Yes, Mrs. Smith, it IS my fault and I should lose my job because YOUR child has never read a book at home and plays video games until 3am on school nights ... Said NO teacher EVER! ......... I just made this one on someecards :-)

    Empathy/Kindness Lesson... read a short story, tearing off pieces of the heart. After the story, lead a discussion about putting the heart back together, and ask students about kind things they can do for others. As they discuss acts of kindness, pick the pieces off the floor. Then glue the pieces on a poster as a reminder to have a kind heart.
