4th Grade- Talked about the intensity of feelings. Shared how feelings/attitude can spread and impact others. Talked about having empathy for others--trying to see their point of view and understand their feelings--and what we can do to change our own moods and to help others.
5th Grade- We've discussed making decisions for ourselves and in a group; today we talked about when others make decisions FOR us. Usually people with authority over us make decisions for us. We might not like their decisions, but we must use self-control when we respond in order to keep moving toward our dreams and goals. Talked about ways to respond/deal positively.
