    I like the idea of the "2" puzzle. Something I use every year ,and it has really worked for behavior. I get 2 small bags of chips or whatever you want. (The 25 cent bags) One bag I crush before hand so the insides are all mashed. (try to not mess up the bag so both bags look the same on the outside.) The other I keep whole. When we begin talking about how our words can hurt others, I pick up the bag,with the crushed chips, and talk ugly to it like a child would to another child. Ex: "You can't play with us." "You are ugly." stuff like that. The other bag, the whole chip bag, I talk nice to. Then at the end of the activity, I pour the mashed chips on a paper plate and the whole ships on another plate. I tell the children that even though we can't see how the words effect others on the outside, this is how the child feels on the inside. The kids love it and it really gets the point across. It has worked for 1st grade all the way to 4th grade.
