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.
"Woohoo!" It's time to talk about our Intellectual Wellness! Words that are healthy for our brains! You each have unique brains, capable of thinking beautiful Positive thoughts, leading to actions, and finally feelings! In order to help our brains be healthy and well, we will be talking about some PAWsome new words, beginning with CURIOSITY! Do YOU know someone who is curious? Mrs. Hott does! To see just how cool our brains are, check this out:
ANNOUNCEMENT: For this week while Dannypoo is recovering, (Jan 21 & 22), the Cougar Den at WSIS will have a VIRTUAL Positive Action Lesson!!! Mrs. Hott will be on YouTube, not at the school, for an online class. A PAWsitive activity will be available too! Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6Fhcv60TlY&t=311s.
Mrs. Sheima will be at Widmeyer Elementary for Positive Action classes.
Now, let's get back to Talkin' Tuesday!......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 super sweet teacher from Widmyer Elementar, Ms. Snyder! Watch this:
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:
Wait, that's not so hard, right? But once you have decided what your favorite tv show is, I want you to also include WHY it is your favorite.
I'll go first. Hi! My name is Mrs. Hott. My favorite tv show is The Brady Bunch. Have you ever heard of it? Well, when I was in elementary school, we watched the Brady Bunch all.the.time! I loved watching the Brady Bunch because it was fun to see other kids growing up, like me! And, they had a fancy house -- and a maid named Alice! I thought that was really crazy!
Look....here is the intro. (Maybe you've seen an episode?)
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?
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.....
