PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT:

Now more than ever, it is important to create a safe, supportive and inclusive environment at school and at home. This program provides opportunities and experiences to practice social emotional development, specifically empathy for others.

The news shows how cruel and unfair the world is and that feels very at times discouraging. But it doesn’t have to always be like that. For today’s activity Ms. Philecia wants you to come up with ways you can change the future NOW. Whether that’s running for class President, attending a school board meeting and voicing your concerns, or even just stopping someone from bullying your classmate. All of these can be ways you stop others from feeling discouraged in your community. Use the table below to help layout your ideas.

DAILY CHALLENGE:

Homework?

This Friday we are giving you a bit of homework! 

Artists, such as Vincent van Gogh, have several famous self-portraits illustrated at different times in their lives. You might be surprised to know that they look very different.

Why do you think artist paint self-portraits and how might they convey different emotions? This weekend we want you to draw your own self-portrait … Twice!

Select two of your favorite pictures (selfies work best) and get to drawing! Once you are done, write a letter to a friend or family member describing your portrait and how you feel it captures your “true character” best. Be sure tell your friend why you selected the two pictures for your portraits. Your letter should communicate what your portrait reveals about you and how it answers the question, “Who am I?”
