Our students have been working on improving their social skills toward peers. This includes the words that we use with each other, as well as the way we make each other feel at school. For Valentine’s Day week, we created “words that are sweet” to help cheer other students up when they are feeling down. Each student in our class came up with words and phrases that they felt would make others feel positive, when they might be having a tough day. Some of these phrases include “never give up”, “you’re smart” and “ I’ll share with you”. We talked about having the power to make others feel good, just by the words we use. Our students came up with some sweet words for sure!
