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.
As we listen to our school family share their dreams, 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 from Mrs. Hott and Mrs. Sheima, where we will get to meet a spectacular student who is training for big event! Let's get to know Taylor Andrews and see what super important organization she is helping to raise money by using her GIFT to run.
So, guess what that means?! Your classmates and 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:
I'll go first. Hi! My name is Mrs. Hott. A GIFT I will share today is that I will thank someone who does things for others! Here I go:
"Thank YOU, Ms. Butts, for your love and kindness at MCAfter3! Your "presence" is a GIFT for our school community!"
Look! There she is! Ms. Butts is super pawesome, right? Now, it's YOUR turn! When you are ready to share, raise your hand then tell us someone you will thank for doing something you take for granted!
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. And, if you need to talk later, just ask your teacher, parent, friend, counselor, or Mrs. Hott by saying "May I please share a "talk it out" with you?"
Remember, sometimes our negative thoughts can turn to better feeling 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.....
