Scrapbook Slips - Give these black and white slips to children to write notes or compliments to classmates to include in end-of-year scrapbooks, a class compliment jar, or gratitude board. They can also be used for tickets or bookmarks. Have children give them a pop of color using colored pencils or markers. Free!
Turn an ordinary jar into a great incentive for students to be good classroom citizens. Not familiar with the compliment jar concept? Here’s the idea: Whenever a child says or does something nice, place a token in the jar. To up the acts of kindness, use tissue paper–wrapped prizes as tokens. Once students have accumulated a given number—and gotten in plenty of counting practice—reward them with a class party.
