With all that is going on in world, in our personal lives, adults and children, we don't need to carry negative baggage to school/work on a daily. For to often we say things that hurt or tear people down. I write a quote for the day on my board daily to uplift my students and I have been doing it for the past 9 years. For a while I didn't think my students were paying attention. One day I was running a little behind and failed to write the quote on the board. One of my students said "Ms., you forgot to write the quote, you're slipping." To my surprise, although no one really said anything, some were paying attention. I even find it funny when old students come by to visit and say "I see you are still writing quotes on the board." It's a wonderful thing to make someone smile or give them something positive to think about. I sincerely appreciate hearing something positive on a daily basis.
