Miss Hubbard's Counselor Corner
During the month of September, our weekly counseling lessons focused on Respect. One way to think about Respect is “seeing value in all people and things & treating them with care.” Respect is 1 of 3 traits we will focus on throughout the year that helps students Be Kind. Each grade level focused on a different aspect of respect.
Kindergarten: Practicing Respect through whole body listening
First Grade: Practicing Respect with our friendships
Second Grade: Practicing Respect to understand solving problems
Third Grade: Using Respect by practicing perspective taking
Fourth Grade: Using Respect while practicing conflict resolution
Fifth Grade: Showing Respect as a leader
Review Respect as a family! Remember that in our lessons we are teaching that Respect means to see value in people and things and treat them with care. Agree as a family to set aside a certain time each day this week to unplug from devices and plug into family time. It shows Respect to practice being present in the moment without the distractions that can come from technology. Debrief and discuss this challenge afterward and commit to this practice at least 1 day each week!
