These Affirmation notes are filled out by the students. They are encouraged to praise other students when they see them doing something good. The student that is listed on the Affirmation note gets an award at the end of the day when their affirmation is read during the class meeting. The affirmation gets crumpled up, "snowballed" and put into the Affirmation bucket. When the Affirmation bucket is full, the whole class gets an award, ie. bring a stuffed animal to school, crazy socks, extra recess, etc.
