Being Thankful

What's Happening This Month:

Students are learning about the anger, empathy, and personal space tool in the upcoming weeks of November. 3rd graders were a selected grade to take a pre/post knowledge questionnaire on empathy and personal space tools. This will only be used to determine the knowledge gained through the vocabulary taught and not receive a grade.

Tools of the Month

Listen to what children learn after utilizing these tools

Listening with our heart, brings empathy towards others. Allowing children to become aware of how they are feeling when encountering tough situations but able to problem solve. Ask your students about the tools and how/when they use them. Having the common language at both home and school can benefit the child in decision making.

November Kindness and Gratitude Challenge

If students complete this calendar (with support of their family) they will be entered into a little giveaway from Ms. Martin! If the acts of kindness do not apply or work for your family, you may change it up. Provide me a copy of a completed calendar before Thanksgiving break 11/22/22.

You may print or create your own calendar!

Toolbox Shout Outs

Smith's and Nutt's class for being excellent listeners during our lesson on the Listening Tool! Students were able to identify the difference between hearing and listening. Second graders were identifying sensations that connect with what they're feeling. Students were able to identify what it means to listen with their ears, eyes, and heart. Students chose one of the following (ears, eyes, or heart) to practice listening with over the week.
