Respect - 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 19th! 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):

RESPECT

Tell your teacher what you think the word "RESPECT" means. 
"a feeling of admiration and regard for another person's feelings, wishes, rights, traditions, diversity"

RESPECT.  What does "respect" look like?  Can you think of a time when respect is important?   Watch this video (and dance if you dare!):






Did you hear these student rap some pretty awesome ways we can show respect?  What did you hear?  (respecting personal space, other's feelings, use nice words, etc....)

Let's talk.  Respect is also important when a disagreement, or conflict happens.  Students who try to use Positive Actions to solve a conflict are showing respect for both themselves and others!  

Think about this:  Was there ever a time when someone accidently bumped or "elbowed"  you in the lunch line?  Maybe it even caused you to stumble or drop something?  This may make you mad, right?  But, if that person says "I'm sorry!" ... YOU feel RESPECTED, which helps us to resolve the conflict in a positive.  

If you can think of a time this has happened to you, raise your hand, and share with your class.  And, the next time a student accidentally bumps in to you, don't get mad; instead, maybe they just need a second to say they are sorry before they see an angry face!  That is also showing respect!

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 RESPECT can change the world!
