Positive Attitude

Give out two sheets of specially prepared paper to each member of your class. At the top of each sheet put your school logo, or some other meaningful design. Preprint the sheets with the name of each student in a nice calligraphic font, followed by a small blank area to enable students to write in their comments.

Instruct the students to write down only the nicest things they can say about each of their fellow classmates. After you collect all the comment sheets, write down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and list what everyone else had said about each individual.

After you give each student his or her written list, ask the class if they would like to discuss the results. Point out that whatever you put into the lives of others comes back into your own. The students should end up happy with themselves and one another.
