Broken link but I want to remember the activity. Have students wrinkle up the paper heart and then try to flatten it out. Talk about how words or actions can harm a heart and take time to heal.... Good first week of school activity!
Need an idea to end the day? The End of the Day Jar has 24 questions to ask students to get them talking about their school day. This helps build community in the classroom. You can call on students to answer the questions or have them talk with a buddy.
