I am lucky to be one of the fourth grade specialist teachers! The class I teach is "The Power of You." Through activities, we learn about the power we have over our attitude, our choices, and ourselves.
In the fall, we will be talking about the power of our words to either build walls or bridges between us. We will be learning about the importance of recognizing different perspectives, working together in a group, how the brain works under stress and how to calm yourself down when anxious or feeling "stressed out." We are also learning about ways to avoid escalation of conflicts and to positively resolve them.
In the winter, we will be moving onto goal setting and college and career readiness using the Get Ready Curriculum.
