Life Lesson #21 (Be a Friend)…

"Be a Friend"

*It is Thursday and that means it is time for another "Life Lesson" video clip.

*This time of year can be difficult in an elementary classroom.

*Relationships and friendships can be difficult and all the earlier lessons have been forgotten.

*I wanted to share something with my students that reminded them about "friendship", being kind to each other, and doing the right thing.

*I'm always trying to find ways to help my students reach their full potential.  

*Each Thursday I feature a different video with a "life lesson" in it.  

*After viewing the video once or twice, we chat a bit about it as a group.

*I then have the writers record their thoughts in their writer's notebooks.

*They can write their thoughts, reactions, connections, wonderings, learnings, or whatever is on their mind regarding the video.

*Encouragement is also given to reflect on the "message" of the clip.

*After about 5-10 minutes of writing, we listen to a few of the students share what they wrote.

*It is my hope that through these "life lessons", my students can become the best young people they can be.
