Changing Your life
One Habit at a Time
SCHOOLS AND CAMPS
We started with a cake, and we recounted all that we have done during the program, from pulling a car to taking an engine apart to learning what's empathy. They filled up a tool box with all the tools that they got through this workshop, then they had a chance to choose what to do, so we had tug of war (I lost) they learned another knot and jumped of the table... thank you for being part of it. I hope to see you all next year!
list of the TOOLS THEY wrote:
sometimes things are not fair
taking apart an engine
being a leader
building a shelter
pull a car
everything is awesome
not everything is fair
take a laptop apart and put it together
making 3d cliff
what is calculated risk
Today Maddie led our group, she taught them the basic positions of Ballet! She did great, and noticed how hard it is to teach something when others don't really listen. After that they tried to complete an almost impossible puzzle, almost gave up and with some help, they made it. With this one, they saw that when some kids work and some don't , those who didn't work can't claim the fame...
Empathy! Ask your kids what it is...We learned today what is empathy, what are types of disabilities and how disabilities can at times be an advatage. They took turns pretanding something happened and the rest had to figure it out. Seeing the world through different eyes is challenging!
The easiest session for me! Today all but one were able to lead the group and teach us all something. Maddie will do it next week.
They all put thought and effort into this and it showed. I really loved the process of giving feedback at the end. we learned about notes, how to make elf ears, cottie catcher, do a football play, and build a shelter.
We made it! the Laptop is working again. Today they saw that putting things together is harder than taking apart... but we made it . We turned the laptop on and it worked!
Ask them how did it go.
Keep an eye on your laptop!! Today they took two laptops apart, we are not done yet... we also talked about fair/unfair situations and how we can use our strengths to deal with it. take a look at what they wrote are their strengths!
Today we did two main things- learned what are those thin lines on a topographic map , and TOOK AN ENGINE APART. we learned how an engine works, and how to read maps. The more they learn the better leaders they will be!
Second round is even better, we tried to think outside the box. finding a way to get a sponge out of a glass bottle, built a shelter , and played floor is lava. The kids are sharp and work very well together
what a great start:
They led a blindfolded partner through a maze.
They learned how to do 8 figure knot.
They went outside and dragged my car with a long rope.
Thank you for sharing your kids with me.
