I teach 7th grade English, and I was thinking of an activity to do for the last day before the holidays. We have exams on the last 2 days before the holidays, and it's crazy to start something new then. I have heard about a pick-me-up/feel good activity with paper lunch bags. You have the kids decorate them and kids write things to make them feel good. They drop these things in the bag. I know that 7th graders are starting to feel the self-esteem problems and such. I'd like to do this activity but I need to really think about it. How do you manage this? What if kids don't know each other well? How do I make sure everyone gets enough. I don't want anyone to feel excluded from this activity since my intention is to make them feel good. Any pointers here? Any advice?
