Peace Corner instead of time out to help calm down. My kiddo learns and changes his behavior when given a chance to breathe and talk through things way better than when I use an excess of negative discipline.
Have students write how they plan to spread peace on a small piece of paper, and attach a Patriotic Stars Cut-Out with the student’s name on it. Use CTP’s Dot-to-Dot Letters and Red, White, & Blue Border to create a display.
I created a Complaint Box for the peace corner. Instead of bothering the teacher with complaints the students write them, put them on the box and wait until the teacher discuss them at the morning assemblies.
