Dream Builder’s Affirmation Alphabet

This was shared with me when I first began teaching in Kansas City.  My second graders would recite it every morning to start their day.  They spoke from their heart and with much feeling.  I can still hear them.  I found it not long ago, buried among my teaching treasures. 

Good stuff.
