CKHGreeting students and providing an encouraging comment as they enter the room is a strategy great teachers use to create a positive classroom climate.

Have you thought about using the same train of thought at the end of a class period or school day? What ends your time with your students: the bell, or you?

Finishing strong with a positive, meaningful message is a great way to send your students on their way. You can use quotes, videos, poems, short stories, class mottoes or pledges to end each class.

Capturing Kids’ Hearts is a curricula created by the Flippen Group to provide strategy and training for teachers and administrators to achieve success in the classroom. HCDE’s Teaching and Learning Center provides classes at our headquarters at 6300 Irvington, Houston, Texas. Upcoming class at HCDE June 7-8. Download the registration form.
