Clip to ScrapBook #3

I don't do this every year because I don't want to repeat the same activity with the same kids, but I really enjoy it when I do decided to teach it. It works for all ages. Sure, the high school kids roll their eyes at a picture book, but I tell them to humor me!

I read the book Just the Way You Are which lends itself well to accepting yourself and others and giving compliments. After I read the book, I give each kid a piece of paper and tell them to write their name on it. They leave their paper on their desk and walk around the room writing positive traits about their classmates on their classmates' papers. It's really nice to see the look on the kids' faces when the read what others wrote about them. They don't realize that they have such wonderful character traits that other recognize.
