I really loved the Eight Essential Questions and Mean vs. Nice

I really loved the Eight Essential Questions and “Mean vs. Nice” As a speech-language pathologist I feel it is crucial to give students the language (vocabulary) to express their feelings. I cannot tell you how many times one of my language deficient students acted out because he didn’t have the vocabulary to accurately express himself. Students need to be taught how to identify mean and nice behaviors and to feel comfortable discussing them. I have already planning to use my social skill cards and encourage an open and honest dialogue about mean vs nice behaviors. 2. I found the idea of being a good citizen most valuable. I am planning to incorporate some lessons for my lower functioning students on why it is important to be a good citizen 3. I think this information will positively impact my ability to maintain the safety, order and rights value set because I am providing numerous opportunities for them to act in an appropriate manner.

Remember to slow down

This has reminded us to slow down and take time for conversation with each other/to build relationships instead of just "work" all the time
