Top 10 Ways to Be Kind - A Bulletin Board Display

Teaching our students to be kind is an important life lesson and a skill that students need to learn and practice. Character education often times comes after we get our reading, math, and science lessons in, but we need to make it more of a priority if we want to create students who are kind members of the community. 


We have created this fun bulletin board display that you can add to your classroom to help encourage students to treat each other with kindness. Use this at the beginning of the year to set up a classroom community based on kindness or use it later in the year to help emphasize treating each other nicely. Either way, this a great way to increase the kindness levels in your classroom - and it works for any classroom grade!



Option 1: Just use the posters to create a kindness bulletin board in your classroom or hallway. This will help motivate students to be more kind. 


Option 2: Add "Kindness Catchers" and catch students when they show kind behavior and reward them with this little ticket. You can add these to your bulletin to make it an interactive board. 

Option 3: Add the student writing piece. We have included multiple versions so you can choose the template that works best for your students.

Spring Math Tubs

I've got some math tubs ready for next week so that I can pull my guided math groups. Also so I can keep my sanity before a very late spring break. We just finished with our time to the hour and half-hour unit and I want to meet with some groups to re-teach and enrich. I also want to throw some review of ALL THE THINGS because, spiral review. ;)




My kiddos love memory/matching games for place value and this one is from my

I feel like time is so fun to teach! It's awesome to see the kiddos telling you what time lunch starts {only if they raise their hand, of course!}. They are loving this game, "Rock Around the Clock" from my Telling Time Packet:



You play music and the kiddos dance around the classroom, when the music stops, they find a different desk and write any time {whatever time you are working on} they want {digital}. Then, I start the music again {they dance} and when the music stops, they find a different seat and draw the analog clock time to match the digital time. I check them off, they erase their boards, and we play again. :)
The mats are laminated and we use dry-erase markers on them.


This one is also from my Telling Time Packet. Why are kids so obsessed with spinners?  They spin the spinner and make that time on their analog {Judy clock} clock. If you don't have a set of Judy Clocks, you can use the DIY cardstock clock that I provide in the packet.






Here's one of the most popular games that my kiddos loooovvvee to practice time!

Here is a game for teaching/practicing time! I have left the clocks blank so that all grade levels can insert the times that they are working on. In partners, each player takes a turn drawing a card. Then, they write down the digital time on their recording sheet.  Watch out for that fly in that pile! If you pick one, you lose a turn!  The first player to fill up their sheet is the winner!
