Each student had a sheet of paper with everyone's name on it. They had to write a nice sentence about everyone in the class. Then each student had 20 nice things written about him or her. We put those in a frame. This activity was great because some of the students in my class don't hear about how great they are everyday at home. Now they have a frame that will stay together rather than just some paper stapled. :) (photo only)
