Kids are returning from a long winter break. Here's a cheery way to review rules--and you must review rules; you know that, right?
This--talking about resolutions--is a fresh way to revisit good behavior, and respectful attitudes toward self and others.
Kids won't just recall the rules. They'll write and draw about their resolutions. It's like a social contract or behavior management plan--disguised as beautiful art work. And you'll display their pieces, as a constant reminder of their promises--dressed up colorfully.
Don't just dress 'em up, bling 'em up with sparkles and spangles. It's bubbly for kids, and a kind of buying in to the deal.
My list of kid-friendly resolutions do double duty as a brain break. I like to chant a line and kids repeat it. They vamp to it, stamp to it, mug away and smile--all to the beat of my electric piano rock beat.
Rules are cool--or "hot"--or rad, or whatever the new word is. Word!
- I will be...kinder
- I will stand...taller
- I will breathe...deeply
- I will be...a better listener
