I Caught You Being Good Jar- This would be great for church, traveling, or just at home. Fill the jar up and there will be a BIG surprise at the end. For some kids it may take a few months, for others...not long at all. Even a great thing for Sunday School. They each have their jar and put one in if they are good.
When I bring up the importance of self-talk with my students, they look at me like I'm crazy. But I continue to harp on it throughout the year, making charts like this. It kills me when students quit the minute something gets hard. Kids need to know how to TALK themselves through difficulties.
