We had a circle at the beginning of class. Elijah spoke about what he learned from by being disrespectful yesterday. Andres gave his input on how to behave in class. We shared our feeling we had some positive things to say. There was no game to play today. Then we continued to read Chapter 2 of Mindset, starting with the section titled Turning Knowledge into Action. The message of this section was that effort can help you when you fail and you do good. Priester’s goal is to keep everyone to be able to talk nice to each other.
To start our good morning off we shared our feelings, some were positive some weren’t. Priester pointed out that guys are shy to speak and girls are sort of better at talking, but sharing will help everybody in the future. Elijah reminded our fellow Dragons to go to the game on Friday the 23rd of October. We continued class by letting Gober remind us what happened yesterday. We learned about the W’s: where, were, we’re, and wear. Next up, we played a game called Mirror Image. Then, we worked on reading chapter two of Mindset sitting in a circle.
Yesterday, when the class was sharing feelings we were all feeling calm and and happy. After we finished sharing our feelings, we sang a song called "Junior Birdman." It was super fun because it reminded of kindergarten. The class also did a review of where, we're, were, and wear. Next, we wrote for ten minutes in our Grammar Notebooks. We also read in our Mindset books about these topics: "Special, Superior, Entitled," "Mindsets change of Meaning of Failure," "Defining Moments", and "My Success is Your Failure." These had all valuable lessons about the ways the both mindsets work in different scenes in life.
