⛵#ELB21 5th Grade SEL: Shrinking Vessel🦈 5th graders had to use teamwork to figure out how to get the entire group in a rectangle on the ground surrounded by sharks. After much trial and error, they needed a little help from Mr. Littrel to come up with a winning plan. After reflecting on the activity, students felt they could’ve done better by incorporating the following healthy habits: Beginning with a Plan in Mind, Thinking Win-Win and Seeking First to Understand and Then be Understood.

#ELB21 First Things First w/ 1st! 1st grade learned about Habit #3 today: Put First Things First. We made rock jars and learned the importance of prioritizing, time management, and organization. The big rocks represent things that are the most important and urgent (ex: Family, health, school/work). The smaller rocks are things that are important, but not urgent (ex: Watching TV, playing games, talking to friends). The sand is the remaining small stuff (ex: toys and material things). #ENJOY #FarmerFUN
