4th- Time management. We made a list of things we do during the week. We categorized those tasks into: scheduled things we have to do, unscheduled things we have to do, and things we want to do. We talked about how to put those things into a calendar/schedule so that we get everything done. We also talked about breaking down large tasks into smaller parts, studying a little at a time, and not putting tasks off until the last minute.
5th- Reputation-how people think about us based on our behavior. The students wrote down what they want their reputation to be in middle school. We talked about how they could earn that reputation. We talked about the impact friends and the behavior of those friends can have on OUR reputation. We discussed how to make new friends and how to handle tricky situations with friends.
