Check out this Southern California white Thanksgiving! I haven't seen a storm like this for at least 10 years!
My class has been working on a social emotional unit for the past several months. We have been practicing the use of Conscious Discipline language. As a part of our learning, we rewrote some pages of the "David" book series.
We discussed David as a character and a student labeled him as "bad." After further discussion, the children agreed that David needed to learn new skills. We changed the wording from "No" and "Don't..." in the story to positive commands.
The children did some directed drawings of David and came up with their own advice that they would give him. They still use "Don't" or "No" in their own words. I had to prompt them when rewording the text on the pages.
These are just a few of the pages. We had many more. We chose pages from each of the following three books.
