It was so much fun to have Miss Utah JessiKate Riley come speak with our classes about her platform #FindValYOU. It is a great lead in to our mental health unit. No homework.
Students are making sure all assignments are caught up AND turned in. :) . Remember - no 0's to participate in the activities tomorrow with Miss Utah. You can do it!
We continued working on our positive quality YOU bodies as well as learned our first definition. Health is the combination of physical, mental/emotional, and social well-being. We learned that knowing about health topics and doing healthy behaviors are quite different. Everyone received a Personal Health Inventory that will be taken today and at the end of the semester to see if improvements were made. This inventory will be kept in your binder.
We are surrounding ourselves with positivity. :) . Students were given a YOU body outline. They are to write/draw/represent 10 positive qualities and traits about themselves. It needs to be completed neatly and be colorful. We will be using these for our classroom border this semester.
The Unit 1 essential questions and health triangle are available. (Rubrics and Proficiency Scales, p. 3 and 7) It is a good overview of many of the topics we will touch upon for our mental and emotional health unit. We will work on it throughout the next few weeks.
Today we had a fun activity learning about the importance of making good choices and Living Above the Line. We made a magic foldable that helped reinforce the concepts. This is one of the few assignments students will take home and teach an adult about it, have it signed and bring it back for credit. If you miss, you can be flagged and we can do the activity together then.
We continued our Getting to Know You activity. :) I almost have ALL of your names memorized. YAY!
This is to see where we are beginning. Do not worry if you do not know the answers - I do not expect you do. We will take this same test at the end of the semester and you will have improved remarkably because then you will know it ALL! :)
