Have a shoebox from your Back to School shopping?
It's time to turn it into a Compliment Box!
For the rest of this week just click here to download my compliment slips and brief directions free from my TpT store. Here is my Compliment Box I made by just covering a shoebox with some fun wrapping paper.
All you need to do is to copy a bunch of compliment slips and model for your students how to give appropriate compliments. I practice this several times, whole class, before we do the "real deal"--especially with the young ones.
Once a month, we sit in a circle and share compliments. We are taught to receive a compliment with eye contact and a polite "thank you." It's a great way to promote a sense of community which is key to effective classroom management! Plus, who doesn't enjoy a good compliment every now and then?
