Talkin' Tuesday with Mr. Eric on Nov. 5, 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 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, Nov. 5, 2019!! For each "Teacher Talkin' Tuesday" in Positive Actions, we will meet a new member of our school family community that cares about YOU!  

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Ms. Nikki will be in the Cougar Den over at WSIS this week as Mrs. Hott is with Dannypoo.  

Get ready to share YOUR talents today for Positive Actions!  Guess what?  Widmyer will have their "show-n-tell" while WSIS students will make a Veteran's Day Placemat for veterans in our community for Positive Actions this week!  It is a Positive Action to use your talent to be generous and create a beautiful picture.  These will be laminated with the help of Ms. Nikki and Ms. Sheima, then distributed throughout our community restaurants.  Check it these locations:
American Legion
Veteran's Program, Nov. 11, at 11:00 a.m.
Roy's Service Center
Morgan on Main
Canary Grill
The Country Inn
Martinsburg Veteran's Hospital

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 Mr. Eric, School Janitor, 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:

"Who is a Veteran that YOU know?  
Tell us all about him or her!"

Wait, that's not so hard, right?  
Dan Hott, US Air Force, 1978

I'll go first.  Hi!  My name is Mrs. Hott.  I know a veteran!  Actually, I know a few.  Dannypoo is a veteran.  Here is his picture from 1978.  Now, guess what?  My daddy is also a veteran!  See!  This is Bobbie McBee in 1958!

Pretty awesome, right?  Now, it's YOUR turn!  When you are ready to share, raise your hand then tell us all about a Veteran YOU know!  And if maybe you don't know someone serving in our military, now you know Dannypoo, right?!?

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.

  Sometimes it helps to get our thoughts together when we write it down.  And, if you need to talk later, just ask your teacher, parent, friend, our 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.....


MoCo Scholars who talk it out 
can change the world!
