Peacemakers

I suppose most everyone has seen the peacemakers and peacebreakers chart that's all over Pinterest.  It's been a wonderful addition to my classroom the past few years, which makes me very grateful to its creator.  Anyway, this year I decided to make a simple classroom book out of the idea.  I want everyone in my class to see themselves as a peacemaker, even when sometimes they aren't.  We all have those moments.  My hope is that there would be power in seeing those words in black and white written about their own little selves.  "Hey, look here.  It says that I'm a peacemaker."  





See?  So very simple but so very powerful.
