Capturing Kids' ♥ Hearts-Teacher tip- GOOD THINGS!

Reflective Question:

Are you doing Good Things at the beginning of your class?


  • Share a Good Thing about yourself. More is caught than taught.
  • Make it a statement - not a question: For Example: Instead of saying: “Julie, do you have something good today?” say “Julie, tell me something good.”
  • Ask follow-up questions to show excitement about students’ Good Things.
  • Change it up: Instead of saying, “Tell me something good.” say “Today, I want you to tell me about a moment you felt really proud of yourself.”
  • Or, have students pair share and then share their friend’s Good Thing for them.
  • Keep it quick: Use a timer to help you stay around 3 to 5 minutes.

As your class grows closer, students will be more comfortable with sharing Good Things. Thanks for investing in your students!
