Friday Journals - kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, & the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover.
Lots of people today need to really THINK before they speak. Too many people have forgotten how to be kind and speak with respect. The saddest part for me is that children are watching and learning how to imitate the same behavior.
