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.

Note to God

Posted by Mrs. W. on Feb 12, 2011

I was absolutely awe-struck as I listened to this young 8-year old girl, Rhema Marvanne, sing this song. The words of the song are so meaningful. This little girl lost her own mother to cancer. She has truly been blessed with a special gift, her voice… and with it she will touch the lives of others.

Note to God
If I wrote a note to God
I would speak whats in my soul
I’d ask for all the hate to be swept away,
For love to overflow
If I wrote a note to God
I’d pour my heart out on each page
I’d ask for war to end
For peace to mend this world
I’d say, I’d say, I’d say

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love cause love is over due
And it looks like we haven’t got a clue
Need some help from you
Grant us the faith to carry on
Give us hope when it seems all hope is gone
Cause it seems like so much is goin wrong
On this road we’re on

If I wrote a note to God
I would say what on my mind
I’d ask for wisdom to let compassion rule this world
Until these times
If I wrote a note to God
I’d say please help us find our way
End all the bitterness, put some tenderness in our hearts
And I’d say, I’d say, I’d say

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love cause love is over due
And it looks like we haven’t got a clue
Need some help from you
Grant us the faith to carry on
Give us hope when it seems all hope is gone
Cause it seems like so much is goin wrong
On this road we’re on

No, no no no
We can’t do this on our own
So

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love cause love is over due
And it looks like we haven’t got a clue
Need some help from you
Grant us the faith to carry on
Give us hope when it seems all hope is gone
Cause it seems like so much is goin wrong
On this road we’re on

If I wrote a note to God


Inspiring Thoughts

Posted by Mrs. W. on Jan 26, 2011

We all pick up messages when we are growing up from our parents, siblings, families,  friends, teachers and others. Sometimes these messages are positive and encouraging, and sadly, sometimes they are not. Read the message on the card, and see how you respond to the words. Are they true for you…or not? Please feel to leave a comment. 

To your brilliance!!!   

 


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!!!!!!!!!!!


Connect to Your Dreams

Posted by Mrs. W. on Jan 16, 2011

To see within your heart is to understand what it is that you dream. Go as deep as you need too, to discover all that you are meant to be. Within you is the beginning of your journey. Go deep and catch a falling star, to discover where you are, as to where you desire to be. ~Gigi Galluzzo~

When you go within it gives you the opportunity to be still and quiet, to connect with your heart and your inner wise voice. This special place is where you can find the answers to questions you may have. It is a place to connect with the wonder of who you really are…. a magnificent, wonderful human being.

✿•°*”˜”*°•✿•°*”˜”*°•✿•°*”˜”*°•✿

Go within. You will find all that you were ever seeking. You will find a fountain filled with life force forever flowing. You will discover who you really are and what you came here to do. We are all unique & here to bring our specialty to the world. What is it that is so unique about you that nobody ever had or ever will posses. ~Monika Burwise~

What do you feel is unique about you?
What or how are you here to contribute?

“Quiet Time”

Posted by Mrs. W. on Jan 9, 2011

As a teacher, I have practiced mindfulness exercises with students for about 15 years. One of my favourites is “Quiet Time”. In today’s busy world, full of never ending busyness and stimulus, there is very little focus on, or time for stillness or quiet time. And yet, I have found that once introduced to “Quiet Time”, not only do students like it, they ask to do it again and again. Telling them to sit back in their chairs with spine straight, meets with “yeahs”.

The breath is always what is focused on first. Deep breaths in and out….holding then releasing. I then choose any number of visualizations, guided imageries, and or affirmations to focus on…or simply allow silence and stillness. Sometimes combining this time with journal writing or reflective writing is also very  powerful. It helps the students to integrate their own experience and insights.

Here are a few comments I have received from students about “Quiet Time”:

  • During Quiet Time I felt that I love myself and I trust myself. I feel happy and great about myself.
  • I think Quiet Time helps me love me more than I ever do and helps me feel more relaxed.
  • During Quiet Time I felt as if inner peace came out and showed me how to calm down.
  • During quiet Time I feel so great because I don’t do this and I hope we can do this every day when we have you.
  • During quiet Time I thought it was a time to see another part of me that I never saw before.
  • I thought Quiet Time was great for me, relaxing my whole body to who I am in my heart.
  • During Quiet Time I felt free and like I had hope in everything I do.
  • During Quiet Time I felt so relaxed. I have never felt so alive to do whatever I want.
  • I think Quiet Time was a peaceful time to feel and see the other side of your heart.

•✿•°*”˜”*°•✿•°*”˜”*°•✿•°*”˜”*°•✿•°*”˜”*°•✿•°*”˜”*°•✿•

It is very humbling to work with students in this way, helping them to experience what it’s like to just ‘be’ still and rest there awhile.

To their magnificence….
