Confidence

Posted by Mrs. W. on Nov 12, 2011

Confidence is having faith in yourself and in someone else. Self-confidence is trusting that you have what it takes to handle whatever happens. You feel sure of yourself and enjoy trying new things, without letting doubts or fears hold you back. When you have confidence in others, you rely on them.

WHY PRACTICE IT?

Fears, doubts, worries, the opinions of others hold us back when we do not have confidence. We worry about making a mistake, we don’t take on new challenges and we are affected by what others think or say.

HOW DO WE PRACTICE IT?

  • feel sure of yourself even if you win, fail, succeed or not
  • try new things and discover what you are good at
  • think positively, believe in yourself and your abilities
  • learn from your challengs and mistakes
  • celebrate your successes

AFFIRMATION:

“I am confident. I love to try new things and do my best. I appreciate my gifts and abilities. I welcome new possibilities. I trust all things work together for good. ”

QUESTIONS TO THINK ABOUT:

  1. When do you feel most confident?
  2. When do you need confidence the most?
  3. What are you best at? What gave you the confidence to try or do it the first time?
  4. Is there anone that helps to encourage confidence in you?

Think positively! Go for it! Know you can!


Respect

Posted by Mrs. W. on Sep 26, 2011

Respect is an attitude of caring about people. It means we value ourselves and others and treat them with kindness and courtesy.

Think about how you would like others to treat you and treat them in the same way. If you want to use other people’s things (friends, brothers, sisters, classmates), ask first and then take care of them.

Affirmation (good to repeat): I am respectful. I treat others and myself as we eserve to be treate. I show courtesy and consideration to others, belongings and property.

Questions to think about. You can post your answers if you like.

1. What are 3 ways you alreay show respect?
2. What are some ways you can show more respect to yourself or others or your belongings?
3. How might you show respect if you disagree with your teacher?
4. How does it feel when you are treated disrespecctfully?

Kids With Character

Posted by Mrs. W. on Apr 2, 2011

ur personalities are made up of character traits and there are many of them. Although we are naturally born with them, it often takes time to really develop them so we are contributing in our families and school in a positive way. Here’s a small clip on why “character counts.”

Remember to take time and learn about different character traits that are important to you or your family and development. There will be more information added about different character traits over time.

Love

Posted by Mrs. W. on Feb 13, 2011

Love is a special feeling, the goodness in your heart. It’s a constant in all that changes in life. We are united through its power, and its energy moves us to reach out to one another. When we practice love, we overcome hatred, fear and suffering and create peace, joy and harmony. When you are being loving, you help other to feel important.

THAT’S the kind of world we want to create and live in!!!


You are practicing love when you:

  • treat others the way you want to be treated
  • say loving and kind things
  • share your things and your time with others
  • show affection
  • think loving thoughts
  • take care of the things you love

Questions to think about/journal about:

  • What are 3 ways you can show love for people (family and friends)?
  • What are 3 ways you can show love for animals?
  • List some things that you love other than people and animals.
  • How do you wish/want people to treat you?

And, since it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow, remember to tell the people you love that you love and appreciate them: your family, your friends and others. This kind of love is the one that connects all human beings to each other in a special way, which is different from romantic love.

Have a blessed day!


Fireworks

Posted by Mrs. W. on Feb 8, 2011

The lyrics to this song are totally amazing. They remind us how special we are!!!
I have included the lyrics:
KATY PERRY LYRICS



“Firework”

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag,
drifting through the wind
wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
like a house of cards,
one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you

You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time, you’ll know

You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through-ough-ough

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, Oh, Oh”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon



Respect

˜”*°•✿•°*”˜ ˜”*°•✿•°*”˜ ˜”*°•✿•°*”˜

Respect….is concern for the rights of others.

It means that we treat others the way we would want others to treat us.

˜”*°•✿•°*”˜ ˜”*°•✿•°*”˜ ˜”*°•✿•°*”˜

We show respect when we:
* show consideration for other people and their feelings
* treat others with kindness and caring
* respect all living things
* use good manners
* keep our word
* know when to speak and when not to
* accept that other people are different and that’s okay
* value cultural and religious differences

˜”*°•✿•°*”˜ ˜”*°•✿•°*”˜ ˜”*°•✿•°*”˜


Close your eyes and think of the word “respect”.

What other words come to mind?
If you’re stuck,this might help:
“Someone who shows respect is ______________.”
(What adjectives or describing words might you use?)


Power of Words and Actions

Posted by Mrs. W. on Jan 24, 2011

All of us communicate with others with our words. The words we use though have the power to build other people up or tear them down.  I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Words/Actions That Tear Down Words/Actions That Build Up
“You can’t do that!” “Way to go!”
“You didn’t do that well.” “I like the way you….”
Making fun of someone “I believe in you.”
Teasing Pat on the back
Criticizing another person High 5!
Putting someone down Being Supportive
Pointing out faults Encouraging someone

So, there are ways that you can make someone feel better, encourage them and inspire them to be the best they can be. You  also have the power to tear someone down. What kind of person do you want to be?

Feel free to share a comment about a time when someone inspired and encouraged you to be the best you can be and to believe in yourself. Remember, you ALWAYS have a choice!

Inspire greatness!!!!!!!!!!!
