We talked about what rumors are, why they hurt people, and what to do if we her one.
See our rumor rules below!
4th grade: We started by looking at some different pictures (optical illusions). We were all looking at the same pictures, but seeing different things! We talked about how people have different ideas and opinions. If we only look at things from our own point of view we can miss out on other great ideas and it may cause problems for us! We can listen to each other, think about different possibilities, compromise, etc. to really help ALL of us to be more successful!
5th grade: Talked about how feelings have different intensities. The more intense the feeling, the more coping strategies we may need to control ourselves when we have that feeling. We did a little experiment to show what might happen to a person who doesn't have many coping strategies. Then we talked about how to take notes and then used those skills to take notes on the copies strategies presented in the book Soda Pop Head.
