Psych Bites from Ms. Williams
A way to start your day...
Morning meetings set the tone for a successful day with connection,
collaboration and an emphasis on social and emotional learning (SEL)
skills. Morning meetings usually take place at school. But with schools
closed in response to COVID-19, this guide shows you how to lead
successful morning meetings at home—with a helpful Conscious Discipline twist.
Once a month our students attend a morning assemblies. During this time they get to see how Shubert handles all the life events thrown his way. Shubert is discovering ways to be safe, make connections and problem solve.
Remember we need at least 60 minutes of physical activity time each day.
Music brings us joy and we can share that gift of joy with others: Sing, dance or play some music with your family this week!
As Mrs. Palmer always says, "A good artist is a good problem solver"! You might not have all the art materials you would in the classroom, but if you get creative art can be made out of anything!
Doing these activities will help you stay healthy and focused. We look forward to interacting with you each week and would love to see pictures of you doing these activities. Remember to stay respectful, humble, and empathetic each and every day!
