I will be visiting each class once a month. These lessons will focus on character and social skills. The lessons are focused on working with students in the following areas: personal, interpersonal, health, career, and academic.
During April, In Kindergarten and 1st grade we will be talking about forgiving a friend. We will read a book and talk about how everyone makes mistakes. We will talk about how you can forgive a friend if they do something that you don't like. In 2nd grade, we will will focus on self-control. We will talk about strategies that they can use in order to make good choices. In 3rd grade, we will read Mr. Peabody's Apples by Madonna. This book talks about the power of words. We will play a game at the end to reinforce how our words change and can effect others. In 4th grade, we will read Enemy Pie and talk about how we need to give others a chance. Finally, in 5th grade, we will be talking about cyber safety and making good choices when online.
If you ever have a questions about a lesson, please feel free to email or call.
