Social Times

Week of March 2-6, 2015

Grades K-2nd

Superflex takes on One-Sided Sid, Unwonderer and the Team of Unthinkables

We have started a new book/lesson series! This week we read chapters 1-3 and began to learn about two new Unthinkables (see below). We practiced asking students in our group questions and then talked about what we would add to their people file (see below) after listening to them.


Coming up next week (topics to discuss at home):


  • We are going to interview someone to find out their favorite hobbies, who they live with, what they dream of, etc.
  • We will use this information to create a people file.
  • People files will help us start to learn about thinking, asking and socially wondering about others.

4th + 5th

Self-Esteem Skill #1: Positive Self-Talk

Activity Reinforcing Self-Esteem Skill #1: You Are Jars


Students wrote things/activities that they are good at. They did such good job and we loved seeing all the wonderful things students thought about themselves. They each got to share out. We used the jars to create a poster outside of the SCSS room. Come take a look at your student's jar. They will go home later this spring.


Coming up next week:


  • Self-Esteem Skill #2: Setting a Goal
  • Continuing to target STAAR reading and math strategies with visuals. Each student will come home Monday with their own copy. PLEASE encourage/expect your student to use the visuals at home when completing reading and math activities.
