The Energy Bus Lesson
Dr. Rios has shared a story with each class over the past week called The Energy Bus. This story shows children how to overcome negativity, bullies and everyday challenges to be their best. Kids are shown how to find their inner motivation and pass on that positive energy to others.
The Energy Bus For Kids presents five rules for the "Ride of Your Life", teaches kids how to fuel their "ride" with positive energy, and shares with kids how to love the people you share your journey with and how to enjoy the ride!
Positive kids become positive adults. So the goal is to get our kids on the Energy Bus and infuse their lives with a newfound vision, attitude, and positivity!
