Yesterday the third grade classes held a community meeting for the rest of the school. Each of our classrooms created a presentation based on OPTIMISM. This past week as a class, I worked with the students on the importance of having optimism and spreading it to everyone around you. Our class read a poem titled "Promise Yourself" by Christian Larson. I have added the link to the video of our performances. Our class is one of the middle acts. Enjoy!
Here is the poem we read:
This morning, as part of our meeting activity, we worked together as a team to solve an optimism poster that another class designed for us:
Later in the day, I read a wonderful book focusing on positivity and optimism titled, The Three Questions by Jon Muth. One of my favorite parts close to end leaves the readers with such a great message:
"Remember that there is only one important time, and that time is now....the most important thing, is to do good for the one standing at your side...these are answers to what is most important in this world. This is why we are here."
Have a wonderful weekend!
