Friday River Launch

December 13, 2019

From : I LOVE CKH Tools! Do you have a Friday Launch?

The Launch: BIG bang for a little buck!

It can be easy to lose track of time... then the bell rings and it’s a rush to the door. Having a daily launch allows me to speak positive thoughts into my students. It's the last thing they hear me say. I want it to be memorable!

Reflective Question:

How frequently are you launching your students?


  • Be intentional. Set a timer or appoint a detailed-minded student to give you a two-minute warning before class or the day ends to leave time for the launch. Add the launch to your lesson plan.
  • End with something meaningful or inspirational: "Today is a great day to have a great day, the choice is yours."
  • Have students put away their materials and be prepared to launch.
  • Occasionally have different students launch the class with a quote or an encouragement.

Don't underestimate the power a launch can have on your classroom culture. Thank you for investing in your students and for modeling Capturing Kids Hearts!
