In my classroom, we are a School Family. EVERYONE in the School Family has a job. One of the sweetest jobs I have ever seen is the job of the Cheerleader. The Cheerleader recognizes and celebrates helpful and kind acts. The Cheerleader starts the week off by getting his/her own celebration horn.
When the Cheerleader sees a kind/helpful act, he goes to that student and says, "I am going to celebrate you for __________________" and blows the celebration horn. The child that was celebrated replies, "Thank you for noticing that."
This will transform your classroom and give your teacher eye a break! =)
I would love for you to hop over to Heather's Heart to read more about the job of the Cheerleader, bubbles, and even some tattling tips. =)
From My Heart to Yours,
