A compliment can often be the best gift we give someone. And it's important for people to know how others perceive them.
Marking the end of the school year by sharing compliments can bring everyone together in a special way as a class for one last time.
A teacher can write each student's name on a slip of paper. Each student pulls a piece of paper from the pile. Each student must then write down something positive about the classmate whose name they have on the slip of paper. It might be some way that person has grown over the last year, something they did well at, or a personality trait or skill the student admires in their classmate. The compliment is written anonymously and the slips of paper are put back into the pile.
The teacher then reads a student's name with the compliment, one at a time, and students applaud after each one is read aloud.
