4th grade: Differences and respecting different ideas and opinions. Shared with each other some ideas about how people are different. What would it be like if we were all the same? Did an activity to show that we all have different ideas and opinions. How can we be respectful of people's ideas/opinions. It's okay to disagree--NOT disrespect!
5th grade: Goals. Talked about goals we have set in the past and reasons we might not have met them. Discussed steps to setting a SMART goal and then practiced setting goals for ourselves.
Specific The goal should identify a specific action or event that will take place.
Measurable The goal and its benefits should be quantifiable.
Achievable The goal should be attainable given available resources.
Realistic The goal should require you to stretch some, but allow the likelihood of success.
Timely The goal should state the time period in which it will be accomplished.
