CHARACTER ED/HOLIDAYS/SERVICE LEARNING
A Tree to Share

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: November 9, 2002

Keep a bare, artificial tree in your classroom. Then place a box of "decorations" (i.e. bookmarks, erasers, pencils, small books, etc.) under the tree. When you see students exhibiting positive behavior in the classroom, invite him/her to take a "decoration" from the box and place it on the tree. Also, when students have extra time following an assignment, encourage them to make their own decorations for the tree.

Before school is out for winter vacation, donate your decorated tree to a homeless shelter, children's home, another school, etc. as a gift from "your children" to "theirs."

Students will be thrilled that their own positive behavior made it possible for something very special to be given to others.
