Very difficult to photograph
Materials: lunch sack
1. Open the sack.
2. Put your tall finger inside the bag.
3. Put your thumb on the outside of the bag so it is touching your middle finger inside the bag. Now, practice snapping your fingers. It should sound like you're catching something in the bag when you do this.
4. Hold the bag in the air and pretend to bounce and catch an invisible ball. Dip your hand a little as you "catch" the ball to make it more convincing.
Materials: paper lunch sack
1. Each day open a lunch sack and put it on your desk.
2. Explain that if they have a complaint or a concern that is not an emergency, they should "put it in the bag."
3. Tell the children you'll listen to everything in the bag at the end of the day.
4. When a child starts to tattle or whine say, "Go put it in the bag."
5. Before children go home in the afternoon, hold the bag to your ear and pretend to listen.
6. End by popping the bag as you say, "That's the end of that!"
