All Week Freebie!

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?

On another note, I am up to 74 likes on my facebook page.  If you haven't liked Mr. Giso's Room to Read©, please do so.  I'm ready to get 100 likes by September.  Spread the word to all of your teaching friends too.  Your support is much appreciated!
