Create a mailbox for kind thoughts. Express appreciation for acts of kindness with notes. There’s even space for "grumpies!"
Everyone appreciates knowing that kind deeds are recognized! Here are some suggestions for how to build a castle mailbox for your class to share kind thoughts with each other.
Glue several empty boxes together into a castle with Crayola® School Glue. Make sure there are at least two "doors" in which to place notes.
Using Crayola Markers, draw building stones on the boxes (cover the boxes with paper first, if necessary).
Decorate your castle with Crayola Neon Model Magic details such as turrets, flowers, or birds. Include a dungeon in which to put any "grumpies." Air-dry your decorations overnight. Glue them to the boxes. Air-dry the glue.
Start sharing kind thoughts and notes of appreciation with others in your classroom! And if something is bothering you, write a note to place in the "grumpies" section.
