PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is the PowerPoint Template on teaching classroom procedures at the beginning of the year. This Ppt is the lesson component to the “Don’t eat the Marshmallow” activity. This is a wildly popular first day of school activity. It has been downloaded over 800 times on Edmodo. It was so popular at my middle school last year that teachers did this activity with their students on the second day of school because of the number of student requests. This lesson begins with handing students a marshmallow and telling them if they wait until after the presentation on classroom procedures they can have a second one. Whether they eat it or wait it their choice. I have included a template PowerPoint that includes all of the necessary beginning of the year procedures that need to be taught to students. After the presentation give them an extra marshmallow if they still have their original. Then watch the TED video Joachim de Posada: Don't eat the marshmallow! (6 min). Link is included. This is a very amusing video that will have all your kids laughing and comparing themselves to the children in the video. After the video is time to discuss the importance of self regulation and delayed gratification. I use the basis of this discussion throughout the year. Kids will often make comments about being a marshmallow eater or resister even after spring break! A worksheet with discussion questions is included.

This is great, I am using this (and the marshmallow idea too!). I do have one question... where is the worksheet with discussion questions? I would love to use those after the video! Thanks for sharing!

I'm glad it worked for you. It's so much easier to start with something and then modify it to fit your needs.
