Activity #5: “The Car Wash”

This activity continues to build a positive and respectful classroom environment. This is to be used when a student has been identified as needing a boost by way of positive comments from the class.

Materials:

  • None

Teacher Preparation:

  • N/A

 

Step by Step:

Step One: Line students up in two parallel lines quite close together and facing each other.

Step Two: One student is sent through the wash (between the lines), as each student comes up with a word or phrase that is positive, encouraging or respectful.

Step Three: As the student walks through the line up, they hear these words of encouragement and feels sparkly and shiny at the end of the car wash.

 

End Product:

The student(s) that go through the car wash not only have a sense of boosted self-esteem, but the rest of the class has also practiced offering positive and respectful words to a peer.
