Here at Armstrong, one of the best things we can do to make a strong community is to include others. All students enjoy being part of the group, and often have positive memories of times they were included.
Given that feeling included is important to everyone, we are using our lesson this week to focus on ways to ask to join a group and to generate strategies to make others feel included. Students are acting out scenarios in groups. In preparing their scenes, they are asked to consider two questions:
- How can we ask to join in a way that is kind and flexible?
- How can we make it so everybody feels included?
Students are doing an excellent job of creatively finding solutions to some challenging situations. If you have a moment, please ask your child to describe their role play and the strategies their team brainstormed to make all students in the group feel included.
Thank you for your support.
