Lesson Thursday #29...

Life Lessons in Room 113 - Writing

*Each Thursday we watch a short video clip that I title "Life Lessons" which I incorporate into our daily writing. 

*After the video we have a class discussion about the content.

*My students then spend time writing about the video which could include their reactions, thoughts, feelings, or connections.

Lesson #29 - "You've Always Had the Power"
*One of my all-time favorite movies is The Wizard of Oz.
*The message about HOME really hits my heart in a big way.
*When I came across this video clip I knew I wanted to share it with my students.
*I try to instill in them that they have always had the "power" or ability to achieve great things.
*There are times when they think it is something I've done, but I tell them "You've always had the power" and can do anything you set your mind to.
*I hope you and your students enjoy this video clip as much as we did.
*We watch the video, we discuss, we watch it again, and then the writers write in their notebooks.
