THINK is a way to get your students to think before they speak. Sometimes students are not very nice to each other, especially at recess. So I use this strategy to help out with this with my students.
Here is what THINK stands for:
T = Is it TRUE?
H = Is it HURTFUL?
I = Does it INSPIRE?
N = Is it NECESSARY?
K = Is it KIND?
I use it to try and do away with the tattling and the hard words that some students have trouble with.
Here is a picture of my display.
I ask my students "Did you THINK when you said that? It takes a little practice, but once the children follow this, I have very little tattling or hurtful words! YEAH! If you have any more questions about this strategy, just let me know!
Have a great evening!
