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.
This week in Positive Action, we hear about INCLUSION and continue to discover words for healthy brains to help us reach academic success!
Today, BSHS freshman, Emma Christie, shares poetry she memorized for the "Poetry Out Loud" competition this year. Listen to her beautiful expression and watch her utilize her INTELLECTUAL WELLNESS. What can YOU memorize? It's a great brain exercise! We have an intellectual challenge for YOU! Memorize a poem of your choice, sign up with Mrs. Hott, and film your poem too!
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:
Think about it. "Everyone matters!" What do you do to help others know they matter? How do you include others?
I'll go first. Hi! My name is Mrs. Hott. I include others with these Positive Actions:
1) I smile at everyone.
2) I ask others if they want to join me on the playground or at recess.
3) I talk to all classmates and ask them questions.
4) I am kind to everyone.
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?
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.....
