Here is a mini-lesson to precede and inform an effective and meaningful effort on the Class Affirmation Sheet.
Words can help. Words can heal. Words can hurt. The words we choose to use with one another each minute of each day are extremely important and can make the difference between someone trying and someone quitting. Being cognizant and deliberate about the kind, encouraging, and beautiful words we share in our classrooms will serve to create a classroom environment that's trusting, nurturing, positive, and optimal for learning.
This is a little mini-lesson to get this sort of classroom started, because an environment such as this takes practice:)
