This activity involves giving each student a small paper bag with this note on the front.
The poem reads:
Peek inside and you will see,
Some items meant for you and me
Reminders as we learn and play,
Our class is special in every way!
Inside are 7 small items that each represent a way for students to act throughout the school year.
Elastic - be “flexible” with each other
Fuzzy Stem - work together to overcome any “bumps” along the way
Jingle Bell - “listen” to each other
Wiggle Eye - keep an “eye” out for each other to be safe
Gemstone - let the truth “shine” in words and actions
Clothes Pin - “hang” your anger out to dry
Cotton Ball - treat each other “gently” with kindness and respect
