Today we discussed the terms optimism and pessimism. We defined the terms and talked about what each looked like.
Then, we discussed why having an optimistic outlook might be better.
Then I showed the students some Think Happy phrases and had them help me interpret them.
We used these phrases to begin to build our Think Happy wall that will help us remember to choose optimism every day.
I have encouraged the students to think of other phrases that we can add to wall. Nurya plans to add “Do Your Best” to the wall tomorrow.
