Self-Awareness: VISION CHART
Close your eyes and imagine what you would like your classroom to be like this year. What things will students and teachers be doing that will foster a close-knit community? How do both students and children treat each other? What will it look like when students are engaged, learning, and having fun in the process?
It’s important to have a vision of what you want that space and your time together to look, sound, and feel like. You are going to be sharing this classroom with your students over the next school year. If you want them to have ownership and feel connected to this community, they need to be a part of creating that vision.
This week the Puppet Kids help to create a class vision chart, by sharing what they would like to see, hear, do and feel more of and less of. This will be a chart that can be added to and referred to throughout the year. As you watch the videos each day with your students, you can then guide them in creating your own class vision chart.
This week of lessons includes four scenarios that you can watch with your students Monday through Thursday with follow-up questions for class discussions. The bonus video for Friday is Puppet Pal News, where student reporters interview the Puppet Pals about what they like about school. Each week also includes a Simple Summary video in both English and Spanish. These are geared for Pre-K students or those who are developing simple language skills while focusing on the target social-emotional skill of the week.
