Friday the 13th might not be known for the best of reasons, but my class knows September, Friday the 13th for being Positive Thinking Day. We celebrated with a little video and some great reads. Even though we loved the video enough to watch it about five times, it really only took once or twice for them to figure out what positive thinking was. Take a look.
My instructional coach tracked down I Like Myself! from one of our K teachers who then let me borrow it. The character in the book sounds practically identical to my little friend in the video. They could be twins. On the other hand, there's The Pout-Pout Fish, who oddly enough can sound like a few first graders I know.
