In my class, I give compliments to kids doing the right thing. They get a star on their star chart whenever they get a compliment. I also have times when students are allowed to give compliments to their classmates. The kids have a ton of buy in with this, and it's really helped my classroom management. 

Last night, I dreamt that we were giving compliments, and one kid raised their hand and said, "I want to compliment the teacher, because she's not crabby today." 

I told the class today, and they laughed and said, "well, yeah." Like I'm crabby all the time? I guess I need to work on that... I thought I was a positive, upbeat teacher! Guess I thought wrong. 

I must not be too horrible, though, because I got a poem today. 
"Roses are red, violets are blue, candy is sweet, and I love you! P.s. As my teacher." Hahahaha she wanted to clarify that she loved me as her teacher - love it! 

- crabby ms. J :)
