In 5th grade, the students took a gallup poll survey about their goals. We read the book Someday by Eileen Spinelli and then students wrote down their goals for someday in their future. They also wrote down what they are doing right now to help prepare them for those goals.
During October, students are learning ways to manage unpleasant or uncomfortable feelings. We watched the video below and read the book, Angry Octopus, to learn relaxation strategies for unpleasant feelings.
