As you may now know, I am in rotations for Specials Monday thru Thursday for Character Time. I will have the oppurtunity to see the students for 30 minutes in rotation each week. It's going to be GREAT!
Week 1 it was time to meet the Counselor
Week 2 our lesson was, "Stop that's not cool!"
Teaching students the power to use their words in a positive way to guide a situation they feel uncomfortable in. It also helps other students reflect and change their behavior.
Week 3 our lesson was, "What is a friend?"
We reviewed qualities of a good friend. The class held their hand up as if it were a mirror and used the concept of looking in the mirror to see what we saw. Did we see a person that was friendly, helpful and kind?
Did we see someone who was mean, grumpy, and selfish?
Week 4 we began our series, "The Power of YET!"
The students had fun with a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLeUvZvuvAs
we then discussed and related "The power of YET" in their lives. We are learning that we don't give up and quit, but we try again and change our brain to hear ourselves say, "I don't know how to do this, YET!"
