We read Howard B Wigglebottom Learns to Listen and discussed why it was important for him (and us!!) to listen and follow directions.
1st: We were recognizing the effects of life changes and talking about coping strategies. We talked about what life changes are, how they make us feel, what changes for us, and how to deal with them. We read We are Best Friends and discussed how the kiddos in the book deal with their changes (moving, making new friends). We did a relaxation activity to cope with tough feelings.
2nd: We talked about positive self concept- thinking good things about ourselves. We listed things about us that we like. We talked about growth mindset-that's is OKAY (and good!) to make mistakes and learn from them!! We read The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes and discussed.
