INSIDE OUR CLASSROOMS 🐯 Today in Mrs. Trina Morgan's fourth-grade class, Mrs. Maggie Moore and Ms. Sara Anderson shared with students the importance of using kind words. They had students cut out hearts and squeeze toothpaste on their heart when something was mentioned that was mean or not nice. Then students tried sucking the toothpaste back into the tube. Students learned the powerful principle that once their words were spoken, they can't take them back.
