Start with "Hello"

The Week of Ferbruary 13, 2017, Wilcox will be participating in our own Start With Hello Week. Start With Hello Week was started by parents who lost children in the Sandy Hook tragedy. The idea behind the program is that students who feel left out, alone, not a part of things, picked on or that they have a lack of friends are more likely to act out in schools. Start With Hello Week is a week where we as a school celebrate friendship, looking out for one another, reaching out to classmates in need and caring for each other. I have gone into all of the Kindergarten classes to introduce Hello week and I will be visiting First Grade on Monday. I have attached the schedule for the week. Please make it a point in your classrooms next week to discuss or write about friendship, do activities that center around caring for each other, create signs or posters or anything else you can think of that can go along with Start With Hello.

Love & Logic at Wilcox
Love & Logic in The Classroom 
 
 What are three best take-aways your learned from the Love & Logic sessions & book?
 
1. The importance of separating yourself from your students' behavior problems. When students misbehave, it is important to not take it personally so you are able to help the children take ownership of their own problems.
 
2. Providing students with choices is very powerful. It helps students take ownership of their problems and it allows children to see that all choices have consequences...some may be good and some not good.
 
3. The importance of letting our children know how much we care for them. Students will work harder for teachers that they feel know them and respect who they are as students. Just simply noticing things about students (I noticed you like to wear purple. I noticed you read lots of dinosaur books. etc...) goes a long way to build this important component.
 
 
 A Teacher's Insight...
 
"Love and Logic has changed my classroom in a few ways this year. First of all, the Love and Logic approach reminded me to remember that students' behavior problems are theirs, not mine. As a teacher, it is very easy to take it personally when the students in your class are misbehaving. However, the Love and Logic approach has reminded me to remember that teachers need to help the children take ownership of the behaviors. I find that when I am able to separate myself from the students' misbehavior, I am much more effective at dealing with it. Next, the Love and Logic approach has helped reinforce the idea of providing choices for the students. Giving students the power to make a choice can be very helpful in a school setting. Providing choices not only gives the students ownership of their problems, but it also helps them see that all choices have consequences. The important thing a teacher needs to remember when providing choices, however, is to make sure that both choices are good for the teacher. Finally, the Love and Logic approach has encouraged me to remember the importance of letting our students know how much we care for them. While reading the text, one thing that kept coming up was the fact that kids will work much harder when they know their teacher likes them. I have really tried to incorporate "noticing" things as described in the book. I've always tried to find ways to talk with my students and get to know them on a more personal level so I can make that connection with them. Reading the book has helped me to understand why it is so important. I plan to try to continue to incorporate some of the things I learned while reading about the Love and Logic approach. I am interested in finding out more on how to incorporate Love and Logic with younger students." (Kindergarten Teacher)
