Paper Flowers Reinforce the Positive in Students

A group of six graders were taught a wonderful lesson about the power of kind words by using paper flowers to share their positive opinions of each other.

The students at Mountain View Elementary School in Olympia, WA created paper flowers from construction paper and glued a picture of themselves in the middle. The teacher, Robin Schiaffino, then instructed them to pass the flowers around and write positive, kind words about each other on the petals. Some of the sweet opinions "smartilicious" and "good paper airplane maker".

I love this idea because all too often all we hear are the bad opinions and it's so great that these young kids are learning self confidence and also about how important it is to be kind to others!
