about the students at
Warm Springs Intermediate School!
And, where we will take a Positive moment each week to
"Talk It Out"
and discuss important student issues.
Here is today's video vlog from Mrs. Hott where our friend, Cutie the Cougar, stops by Mr. Boyles' classroom and joins in a game of beach volleyball! Exercising is PAWsitive not only for your physical wellness, but also your emotional wellness too! Mrs. Hott wants you to exercise acts of KINDNESS too! Can YOU recognize a friend from our school family?
YOUR student assets are what will help you succeed here at school and as you grow up.
So, guess what that means?! Your teachers also want to learn more about YOU too! For Positive Actions each Tuesday, you will have the opportunity to share something new about yourself with your teacher and classmates. It is "Talk It Out Time!" Each week, we will share one brand spanking new thing about our selves.
Here is what Mrs. Hott wants you to do each week. I will give you a completely different topic, and you will share with your teacher and friends something brand new or unknown about yourself! Just watch the discoveries...we may find that someone in our class we don't know very well may have something in common with us! Or, we may be completely and crazily different. And, guess what?!...That is OK! It is a Positive Action to learn about our community's likes and respect each other's differences.
So, for today's "Talk It Out," are you ready? Here is our new discovery question, not in your Positive Action folder, this time:
Wait, that's not so hard, right?
I'll go first. Hi! My name is Mrs. Hott. I exercise kindness by sharing my smile! Remember when I shared about why my smile is an important core memory? I feel better when I try to smile, and like someone once said, "smiles are contagious"!
Pretty awesome, right? Now, it's YOUR turn! When you are ready to share, raise your hand then tell us about how YOU can EXERCISE KINDNESS!
That was awesome too!
To close, we will finish Talkin Tuesdays with a chance for you to share something important with your teacher. Is there something you feel like "if my teacher only knew...." it would help her/him understand you better? What is new this week you can tell your teacher? For example, if my teacher knew how hard I tried or I really did do my best on our spelling words, you may feel more positive! Or, if my teacher only knew why I was late again, maybe she/he can help me, etc.
Remember, sometimes our negative thoughts can turn positive just by telling or sharing with another person! It is a Positive Action to "peacefully resolve our conflicts" too with others at home, school, and our community. "Talking it out" starts with one student at a time...and that is.....
