A Calm Down Jar. Shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles.

Mind Jar  How fun is this mind jar?  I found this idea on a blog called Here We Are Together.  She explains that "A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever a child feels stressed, overwhelmed or upset. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down".   This can provide a nice alternative to a traditional timeout, and it encourages the child to refocus without punishing them…

I LOVE this idea for repurposing an old crib rail into a chore chart and behavior system! Talk about creative organization!

So Cute!!! Following graduation a father handed his daughter a bag with a copy of "Oh the Places You'll Go," by Dr Seuss in it. At first she just smiled and said that she loved that book. But he told her "No, open it up." ...On the first page she saw a short paragraph written by her kindergarten teacher. He told her "Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I've gotten every teacher, coach and principal to write a little something about you inside this book."
