WPC “Circle” – Paper Plate of Positive Traits

 

The instructions were simple, even for a first grader.circle

“Write one nice thing about your classmate on his/her paper plate.” The plates were distributed to the children on the last day of school to take home as a memento of the year.

This simple but lovely exercise always touched me, particularly the heartfelt but honest sentiments scrawled by the children.Β  One phrase that appears several times for my son was “You are so nice to me!”

I loved that compliment. So easy to do and clearly too so very much appreciated.Β  After all, who doesn’t like to hear something positive about yourself?

I found this paper plate tucked away in a closet yesterday and thought it perfect for this week’s challenge. Find something positive in someone today, even if you have to dig a little. You may receive the compliment in return. Full circle.

  1. What a very clever and thoughtful entry for the challenge and a great idea for the kids. I especially like your thoughtful comment at the end “Find something positive in someone today, even if you have to dig a little. You may receive the compliment in return. Full circle.’

  2. This is wonderful. I’m pleased to say that my two children (now teenagers) still remember activities like this and I’m grateful to the inspiring teachers who helped facilitate love and respect in the classroom. Our world needs more plates like this! Thanks for sharing.
