Balancing Stones  cairn 4

When balancing stones the mind becomes focused
calm and quiet. It’s a meditative practice that brings us
fully to the present moment.

 

Today's Topic - Emotional Wellness

The emotional dimension of wellness emphasizes an awareness and acceptance of one's feelings. Emotional wellness includes the degree to which one feels positive and enthusiastic about oneself and life. It includes the capacity to manage one's feelings and related behaviors including the realistic assessment of one's limitations, development of autonomy, and ability to cope effectively with stress. The emotionally well person maintains satisfying relationships with others.

 

 

 new wednesday  - JANUARY 9, 2019

TOPIC: Emotional Wellness Toolkit

How we feel can affect our ability to carry out everyday activities, our relationships, and our overall mental health. How you react to your experiences and feelings can change over time. Emotional wellness is the ability to successfully handle life’s stresses and adapt to change and difficult times.

I most likely will be in to see you today. I will be out for another two weeks; however, I want to catch up on what you have been doing. By now you should have decided on the games for the school Fair activity day. You should have identified what is a community and made the poster. 


IMPORTNT: Spirit week is October 29th - November 2. Please take the survey.  Fill out this form.

Prom: Please use this link to vote on prom theme.

NEW TOPIC: "Pay It Forward"
Please watch this video: CLICK HERE

You will:

my dream is

  • define serial reciprocity (paying it forward).
  • view a movie or movie clips and discuss characters and concepts related to the impact of paying it forward.
  • brainstorm and investigate social issues that they can address in their communities and world.
  • take action through service and social activism.
  • design and implement a campaign to raise awareness of a chosen issue of importance.

 

VOCABULARY:

service: to provide a community or organization with something that it needs

donate: to give or present something, especially to a charitable organization or other good cause

paying it forward: the concept of asking that a good turn be repaid by having it done to others

social activism: an intentional action to bring about social, political, economic, or environmental change. It can take a wide range of forms from writing letters to newspapers or politicians, political campaigning, economic activism such as boycotts or preferentially patronizing businesses, rallies, street marches, strikes, sit-ins and hunger strikes.

WHAT YOU WILL DO NEXT:

You will think of a slogan or motto that you can give your campaign that will engage interests and deliver the message that they are trying to convey to their peers and the community. Once the slogan is chosen,  write a simple individual pledge of service related to the chosen issue/slogan on the card the sub will give you.

Take paper from the back of the room and  make a  "banner."

Write the chosen slogan in large letters in the center of the banner, and then each student can hang their individual pledge statement to the banner.

WALKING ACROSS AMERICA

LESSON PLAN:

Keeping Track of Your Progress

  • Each student will be responsible for logging their own distances.
  • One student from our class will collect the weekly totals and then report the class totals to me.
  • I will then post a flag on the big map next to the teachers lounge.
  • The class who makes it to the end of the trail or the furthest before the last day of school, will be honored with a pizza party.
  • All participants will receive a certificate of participation.

HOW to Start Your Adventure

  1. This Section Mile Tracker for the American Discovery Trail should
    help you know exactly where they are on your journey.
  2. Chart your walking minutes, miles, or steps on a virtual walk across the USA  on the American Discovery Trail Map.
  3.  This web walking adventure covers 5048 miles - which you can complete as 5048 walking minutes, 504,800 steps,  or 5048 miles.
  4. As you enjoy your fitness walking, you can follow along with the sights you would see on the trail. You can also fill in the segments on the printable map.
  5.  Follow the following LINK to start your adventure!
  6. Visit the American Discovery Trailsite for maps and segment descriptions.
  7. Total your minutes, miles or steps as you walk, and as you reach each milestone note it on your Webwalking USA walking log.

Here is your link to your walking trail

Webwalking USA Logs

Here is a link to the MAP you can track your progress!

Choose how you want to track your walks. By using the minutes option or the pedometer steps option you will get across the USA faster. Or you may want to record it as miles. Print out the following pages to use as logs for your virtual walk.
 

Tracking Physical Activity- For your enjoyment

Miles Log
Track your true mileage and chart it each day.
Example 1: 5 miles = 5 miles

Minutes Log
Chart your walking minutes and equate them to miles on the trail.
You will see your progress build each day as a great motivator to walk.
Example: 60 minutes walking = 60 miles on the trail.

Steps Log
If you use a pedometer, you can chart your steps each day. Delete the last two digits of the total (divide by 100) and equate that to miles on the trail.
Example: 6000 steps = 60 miles on the trail.

Designing Your Flag:

Each team of students will design two flags:

  • A small flag that will be placed on a pushpin and placed on the map. This flag will be moved weekly as we track their progress. These flags should be no larger than 1.5 by 3.0 inches.
  • The other will be approximately 12x18. This will be placed around the map and serve as a representation of their team.
  • Let’s create a healthy atmosphere of competition!

Here are two websites that allow you to design your own flag.
