Hi All! Do you ever feel like you don’t have enough time in the day? I recently had my 32nd birthday and was asked what I wanted for my birthday. I thought hard and started building my list……
pedicure new shoes a new dress
THEN…. reality hit me and I decided what I really wanted this year was more time.
I feel like I need more time to accomplish the millions of things I like doing…
- play with my 2 children (I mean really sit down and play for long periods of time without thinking about dishes and laundry)
- time to devote to creating new products
- time to build my Christmas list (sooooo way behind on that)
- time for using my silhouette that’s just collecting dust on the shelf
At that moment, I realized that TIME will never be an option for a birthday present, so instead I thought about all thing things I am grateful for…. currently. I wanted to take this gratitude and extend it to my classroom. Do you wonder if our students are taught to express gratitude? I do!
Taking on an attitude of gratitude in the classroom is the new focus this month. I thought about extending the speaking and listening standard from the classroom to home around the dinner table. In this video, you’ll hear ideas and see an example of expressing gratitude in November then following up with taking that learning and gratitude to each student’s home. Funny how a birthday list can quickly turn into including the speaking and listening standard into our November theme “An Attitude of Gratitude.”
