Mind Jar -- meditation tool for all ages: "when stressed, overwhelmed, or upset, imagine the glitter as your thoughts/emotions. when you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts/emotions. then watch as they slowly settle together, and you calm down."
Communication- Good Idea to put in take home folder. Also, good documentation for parents to be aware of what to expect on the report cards for behavior and effort!///I like this SO much better than what I've been using!
