Talkin' Tuesdays with Ms. Akers on Oct. 1, 2019

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

Today is TEACHER TALKIN TUESDAY where we see that our school family of teachers, staff, and administrators care 
about the students in
Morgan County Schools!

And, where we will take a Positive moment each week to 
"Talk It Out"
and discuss important student issues.

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, October 1, 2019!! For each "Teacher Talkin' Tuesday" in Positive Actions, we will meet a new member of our school family community that cares about YOU!  

As we listen to our school family share their dreams, how hard they worked/studied, when they were little, stories of their life, and how Positive Actions helped them, we learn a little more about each other.  Discovering about each other's life helps us to understand why and how we become who we are.

Here is today's video vlog where we will get to meet Ms. Akers, a 3rd grade teacher from our Warm Springs Intermediate family: 

YOUR student assets are what will help you succeed here at school and as you grow up.  When we learn more about our teachers and staff, it helps to create a caring school climate, which is an essential external developmental asset. 

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 self.

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 discovery question:

"What is your least favorite food?"

Wait, that's not so hard, right?  But once you have decided what your least favorite food is, I want you to also include WHY it is your least favorite food.

I'll go first.  Hi!  My name is Mrs. Hott.  My least favorite food is a mushroom because, well...just LOOK at them :

Eeeewe...they sure look disgusting to me!  For some reason, the idea of eating fungus sounds so gross!  But guess what....Ms. Sheima LOVES mushrooms!  Every time we get a Fox's pizza, she always gets them (and, she adds olives too)...see!

BUT, want to know something cool?! Ms. Sheima and I don't eat the same stuff but we still are great friends!  You can do this too!  And, even though I do not like to eat mushrooms, I will try them prepared different ways.  Who knows?  Maybe someday I can learn to like mushrooms! And, I learned that when I give things a chance, I may be surprised. 

Pretty awesome, right?  Now, it's YOUR turn!  When you are ready to share, raise your hand then tell us YOUR least favorite food and why!
(pause here for sharing)That was awesome too!  You ALL just did a positive action by sharing something about yourself.  It is positive because it helps us to better understand each other. 

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, you can also use your Positive Action Journal to write down or draw your thoughts and dreams too.

And, if you need to talk later, just ask your teacher, parent, friend, our school counselor, or Mrs. Hott by saying "May I please share a "talk it out" with you?

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.....


Morgan County Students who talk it out 
can change the world!

and feel....HAPPINESS!!!
