As a review, we played Red Thought Green Thought . In our class, we label 'thoughts' in three colors to indicate negative ( red), neutral or confused
(yellow) and positive ( green). Red thoughts are those we think to be negative and are very sticky ( hard to forget). They can also wrinkle our hearts . See wrinkled heart lesson here.
As Snowy and I read the cards to children , they took a step forwards us if it creates a green thought and a step back if the words creates a negative thought. They did an excellent job and knew the difference . Some also knew that it also depends on the person saying it and the context. True! Wisdom in room 15!
We talked a bit about our social filter and how we must learn how our words impact others. Our next lesson will be to determine if we should say or think our words !
This concept and vocabulary will be ongoing all year.
