Kid President Pep Talk video, in which he reminds us all that "we were made to be awesome," my students wrote Awesome Poems and thought about what their "Awesome" is. I took a picture of each student sharing their Awesome and I am going to put together an iMovie for us.
I encourage my students to always "Choose Awesome." When they do, they get to proudly wear a sticker that says "I Chose to be Awesome Today!" Their faces light up when they earn their sticker and get to place it on their Awesome chart at the end of the day.
It's still too early to say if our little awesome experiment is working and is improving behavior. I do hear kids using the word more often and encouraging each other to make the Awesome Choice. One of my boys even asked if he could give another student an Awesome sticker for helping him when he tripped in the hallway.
So I guess that is what it is all about....
Making life a little better for someone else by the choices we make.
The choice to help.
The choice to be kind.
The choice to encourage.
The choice to support each other.
That is what Awesome means to me.
How about you?
Did you do something Awesome today?
