4th- We reviewed feelings and talked about empathy--putting ourselves in someone else's shoes to understand how they feel. We talked about the importance of seeing someone's point of view and having empathy for them--how it helps as people, friends, classmates, teammates, etc. We talked about attitude and how attitude/intense feelings spread when we don't deal with them/express them appropriately. We discussed what to do if WE had those tough feelings and what to do if someone around us had a negative attitude.
5th- We reviewed our coping strategies from last week. We discussed how sometimes we have those tough feelings when trying to work together or cooperate with others. We talked about times at school we need to work together and some strategies for making decisions as a group. Then we put our skills to work by getting into groups and making some very important decisions together--such as where to go on an all expense paid vacation and who to take with us!
