Responding with Kindness

Students will be able to analyze how feelings can influence their behavior and how responding appropriately to negative feelings can help them make positive choices, analyze the relationship between feelings and behavior and discover what it means to persevere even when it may be difficult to do so.

I am a new teacher who will be teaching 6th grade starting next week. I thought that this was a great activity for students! This could be modified for students of all ages, and I think that they would enjoy it. Great job!

I am a 62 year old mother, grandmother and mother-in-law....and have a daughter in law who is the mother of my four grandsons ages ranging from 3 to 10. She responds very poorly to her four children when addressed or spoken to. I came across this web site and was thinking that if this was taught to her children, my grandchildren perhaps she may pick up on some correct behavior as well. I notice that my grandsons are already having the same negative response to me when they speak to me. Of course because they live with it all the time....I want to try and change this before they get older....please send me your lessons so I can incorporate this information to my son. Thank you.
