Thursday Lesson #30...

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 #30 - "Pay It Forward"  
*Who doesn't love the message of paying it forward.
*One of the under-lying themes of our year has been kindness and paying it forward.
*I try to teach my students they should always practice kindness and do kind things for others.
*This is one of my favorite movies and I think this clip really captures the essence of the movie.
*We watched the clip, discussed, watched again, and then of course did our writing!  
*Powerful, meaningful, and important...
