It’s not enough to just be kind, you’ve got to try and be a little kinder than is necessary.
My goal today is to try and live up to this sentiment from a sweet card I got from a colleague. I’ve been a bit stressy this week and lost some focus. It’s RAK week, our country is grieving, and I have hundreds of students needing me on my A-game. Two days left this week, hitting my reset button now to rock them.
Two new activities that I used with our ‘Better Than You’ book companion lesson: Conver-Stations and Spectrum Responses. Two 👍🏻 for new ways to have discussions! Swipe for more details ➡️ (Full lesson on TpT, direct link in profile)
‘Better Than You’ was the second Trudy Ludwig book in our 4th grade unit. It brilliantly hits themes of bragging, negative self-talk, and friend selection. Book tour in my instastories 👆🏻Definitely recommend for 3rd-5th.
Check Ins: Mornings can be crazy and sometimes I’m not able to give my full attention to the friends that like to stop by my office on their way to class - using my #targetdollarspot finds as a quick emotional check in tool! Each kiddo has their own calendar sticky note with their initials, and they find the emoji stamp that matches their morning feels to show me where their head and heart are at. 🧠💙
If you’re not already, y’all are definitely going to want to follow @targetcounselors! I love finding new (affordable) and creative things to use in my work. Every time they post, I ask my husband to stay with the kids so I can run to Target because of course I need #allthethings. #counselorfollowfriday
