A quick post to share a delight. The 6th grade is working on their multi-modal definitions of the word “attentiveness” using art, music, drama, and dance. One group was struggling with teamwork so a student came over and asked for “Wisdom”. Wisdom is our stuffed owl we use as a “talking stick”. They realized their need for the strategy, got him from the shelf and used it themselves! They are now working and ready to focus.
When the little things work, it makes the whole day great.
