"MoTo" Mondays on August 26, 2019

...where ALL students are UNIQUE and Wonderfully Made!


  
Mrs. Hott is SUPER excited to share Positive Actions with Morgan County students because today, and each Monday, is when we "motor-up" YOUR school week and get ready for more PAWsome days of learning and growing... 
"MOTO Monday!"    
or, "Motovation Monday" where we will see a vlog to get our week "motored-up" with positive thoughts, actions, and feelings!

Our PAWsitive Action "word of the week"is:  SAFETY



For Positive Actions, we are learning about wonderful words that build our Social and Emotional Wellness to help us all get along (at home, school, and in the community), raise our student assets, build confidence, and improve our academics! 

This week, we will see our school family practice PAWsitive behavior that shows SAFETY in our school community! Let's take a look at another community called a "pride" where a diverse group of animals live together in harmony too.  Maybe you have seen this movie over the summer?

Watch today's "MOTO Monday" vlogcast. 






Did you hear that? Mrs. Hott loves those lyrics (song words)!  The next time you see the Lion King, imagine you each are Simba.....

From that day you arrived here at school
All blinking and stepped off the bus
There's more to see, than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done!

There's far so much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high, across our Morgan County sky
Keeps PAWsitive and safe at school and around




Positive Actions will appear in our schools this year and begins today on a journey together to discover that starting with positive thoughts, we can choose positive actions, and help us to gain positive feelings!  Take a look at our logo:

 Berkeley Springs is a unique community to live and grow up. And, just like that stream in the video is full of many drops of water, our schools are also filled with unique and wonderfully made children.  When we add them all together, and mix in some positive acts of kindness, we've made a beautiful pool of water.  
Today, we will begin looking at my favorite value word:  Kindness.
Check out this cool picture:
(Teacher, please read to class:)
Every act of Kindness, no matter how small, creates a ripple out and reaches our community around us.  Whether we are home, at school, or somewhere in our community, being kind is a Positive Action that helps us, and others, feel good.
What is Kindness?
Think of an act of kindness YOU did this summer.  Got one?  Raise your hand and share this with your class.
Now, for Positive Actions today, our students are going to begin to make our school a Community that Cares!"  With just one act of kindness...it begins with YOU!
What kind thing can you do today?


Get Ready for a POSITIVE school year...filled with Kindness!
Stand up everyone!  
Push in those chairs!
and...sing along to the Morgan County Kids' Creed!







Did you like that?  If you are in 3rd grade, you will get to learn this song with us too!  

Students that are KIND and SAFE
can change the world!

Talkin' Tuesdays, August 27, 2019

...where ALL students are UNIQUE and Wonderfully Made!

Today is TEACHER TALKIN' TUESDAY!

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, August 27, 2019!  We are going to spend some time looking at the Morgan County Kids' Creed and taking a look at school expectations with a Cougar Crawl around Warm Springs Intermediate School over the next two weeks. 

How many of you happened to see the movie Minions 3?  
This was a fun movie!  I liked ALL of them!  Wellll....check out a few of our yellow friends as they illustrate POSITIVE classroom community clues with some super helpful classroom rules. 


Wow....Mrs. Hott feels a little bad for the purple guy, don't you?  Wonder why?....
Let's talk about it for TALKIN TUESDAY.  
What did YOU notice?

What are some Positive Actions we can follow in our classroom?
(Review Classroom Rules...)
Why is it important to follow the "School PBIS Expectations"?
(Because it helps us have a caring community, shows others respect, helps us learn when we all follow classroom rules, etc...)
Who feels happy when YOU follow the classroom rules?
(teacher, friends, Mr. Cable, Mr. Todd, parents, etc...YOU!)

And, remember....
Cougars that are KIND and SAFE can 
CHANGE THE WORLD!





Value Vlog Vednesday, Building SAFE and KIND Classrooms on August 28, 2019

...where ALL students are UNIQUE and Wonderfully Made!

Today is VALUE VIDEO "V"EDNESDAY!
and "Where in Morgan County Are Positive Actions?"  

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, August 28, 2019!  For a look at safety expectations, we are going to continue spending some time taking a Cougar Crawl around Warm Springs Intermediate School over the next two weeks and illustrating SAFE expectations at Morgan County Schools. 

Did you like the Minion's review of "Classroom Rules"?  Check out Wednesday's Video where our yellow friends return to review rules that apply for our schools.  Let's take a look at how following the classroom rules looks like Positive Actions, and pay close attention for scenes from yesterday too, they're important:


Now, let's take turns reading a few guidelines that may work at your school too!  These expectations are from Mr. Cable that apply to Warm Springs Intermediate Schools's Classroom and Related Arts, (Library, Music, Art) including-like the Minions Video Vednesday-the Library, "Cougar Classroom Expectations!"




Next, we'll take a look at some PAWsome WSIS Cougars showing us KIND Cougar Classrooms!  Being kind and following the Cougar Ways helps us ALL to stay SAFE at school! Let's watch:


Let's close today with the Positive Action Theme Song!  On your feet,...and ready to be positive!




(If time allows or perhaps later in the day, for a classroom exercise, try making a scene of each "rule".  Start by grouping students and having them "act" each rule.  Then talk about why the rule works and is a positive action! 
Because it gives us a positive feeling to following the classroom expectations that keep us safe and responsible.)

Students that are KIND to ALL help us be SAFE....
CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!

Care to be SAFE! On Aug. 29, 2019, Raise the Roof....

on student assets!  
Where ALL students are UNIQUE and WONDERFULLY MADE!

Today is Raising Student Assets Thursday!

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, August 29, 2019! As we continue to illustrate school SAFE expectations with a Cougar Crawl around Warm Springs Intermediate School, over the next two weeks, for today we will take a look at raising student assets and a super important positive action word:

CARE

Tell your teacher what you think the word "CARE" means.
"to feel concern for others, recognizing that other student's interests and likes are important too"

To care.  It is very important for us to care for other people, our friends, class mates, teachers, and our friends, families, and neighbors.  Look around at your new school friends.  Go on. Check out all the PAWsome classmates who care about YOU and new friends for you to show that you care about them! 

Sometimes, with people we don't even know, we show a Positive Action just by caring for someone who needs our help.

Read this:

And remember, it is also important to know that here in Morgan County Schools, we care about...

YOU!

Watch this:



We begin our school year looking at the Positive Action, SAFETY.  Safety is a doing acts that keep us healthy and unharmed.  We want ALL students to feel safe because we care about you!  A great way to stay safe is to follow the Cougar Ways or school rules and be kind to everyone!  If YOU are being KIND,.... we will all be safe!

 If we "care" about others, we will act kindly towards them.  Talk about what you noticed in this video were acts of caring for others.  For Positive Actions today, let's show our school community that we care too!  

What can you do to show that you care?

How do you feel when you have done something to show that you care?

Remember this:  YOU can make a difference!  When you show others that you CARE, it makes a HUGE difference in their day AND it makes YOU feel PAWsome too!

Students that are SAFE 
can change the world!
