How Does Your Engine Run ?
During second quarter students began to discuss "The Alert Program" which helps them to identify their preparedness to participate in the classroom. With the help of the engine visual, students learned that their energy level can affect how much they learn at school. If our engine is running "low" we may feel too tired to participate in class. If our engine is on "high" we might be too hyper to pay attention and sit quietly. However, if our engine is "just right" we are alert and ready to learn from teachers and each other. Students then participated in activities which helped them identify and differentiate between the levels.
