Friendship - Raising 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, Nov. 9th! As we continue to improve our positive thoughts, actions and feelings, today we will take a look at raising student assets and a super important positive action word:


FRIENDSHIP 
Tell your teacher what you think the word "FRIENDSHIP" means.
"a relationship between friends"

Friendship.  What does "friendship" look like?  Watch this video:




"Set to a song by The Judds, "Love Can Build a Bridge," this vlog represents people with different points of view united by a common bond. They might get together on a regular basis to enjoy each other's similarities and appreciate each other's differences. The bond they share is also a fun one. The setting is outside in a park where this kind of meeting might be more likely to happen - and food is always a good thing to get together over.  Friendship...pass it on!"

What do these friends all have in common?

What are the differences between this group of friends?

It is a Positive Action to be friends, especially with people very different from you!  

For today's morning community vlogcast, Mrs. Hott wants YOU to find a partner.  Go ahead and do that now.  (And, if there are an odd number of students, it is ok to have three students together.)

Next, with your partner(s), do this:
1)  In your Positive Action folders, use a blank page for today.  Each person in the group will put the names of the students with whom they are doing the exercise.
2)  Make a list of all the things that are DIFFERENT about each other.
3)  Next, make a list of all the things that you have in common.  (Like the three in the video that all like donuts.)
4)  Finally, remember this simple exercise.  And, if you find yourself in conflict with a classmate, sit down and list your likes and differences.

You may be surprised to discover that when you use Positive Actions, classmates can appreciate, or like, different things yet still be friends!

And remember, it is also important to know that here at Warm Springs Intermediate School, we are all part of a "cougar community" where the most important friend is...


YOU!

Cougars that can show FRIENDSHIP can change the world!
