Encouragement Jar

This year at my school we are using Positive Discipline in the Classroom. A very large part of this program is being encouraging: both the teacher encouraging the students and the students encouraging each other. So we made an encouragement jar.

I had the students close their eyes and imagine a really bad day. I asked them to think of how they felt on that bad day. Then I asked them to think about what they wish someone would have said to them to make them feel better. These phrases we wrote down and put in our encouragement jar. That way, when any of us are having a bad day we can pull out an encouragement and read it and soak in the happiness and feel better!

Here are a few of my favorite encouragements that my students came up with:
