Friendships that INCLUDE ... 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, April 5th! 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(s):

FRIENDSHIP

Tell your teacher what you think the word "FRIENDSHIP" means. 
"when two, or more, people get along with mutual respect, support and trust for each other's likes and differences"

FRIENDSHIP.  What does "FRIENDSHIP" look like?  When children are included in activities, they feel part of a caring community.  When YOU INCLUDE someone else, YOU are being a good friend to others.  This is a positive action.   Watch this video:





I LOVE this video!  Why?  Because Mrs. Hott was typically the last person picked to play sports!  Sure!  My friends always were ready for me to help them with school; but when it came to sports, "shorty" (Mrs. Hott) was not the first friend on anyone's list. 
But, that's ok!  I may have been a little late trying out my athletic abilities, (like 49 when I began to train for a half marathon!), but I always tried to encourage others to play games with us too.

Think of a time when you felt "left out."  How did this make you feel?  (sad, angry...)  Remember this feeling, so if you ever see someone alone, maybe during recess, try to be a friend today and invite them to play along too!

To INCLUDE others by playing with them, sharing ourselves, offering a smile, helping when needed is a POSITIVE ACTION.  Including people in your every day activities is a beautiful way to express that "good ole GOLDEN RULE" too!  You INCLUDE others because it feels good when YOU are INCLUDED, right?!?

And remember, it is also important to know that here at Warm Springs Intermediate School, we are all part of a "cougar community" where positive actions start with...


YOU!

Cougars that show FRIENDSHIP and INCLUDE others
