#SOL15: Celebrate!


When you hear the word “celebrate” is this an image that comes to mind?

celebrate balloons

A fun gathering for a specific event with perhaps some balloons, a bit of confetti, and fun?

Dictionary.com has the following definitions for celebrate:celebrate.JPG

Who knew there were so many definitions?

How do you “celebrate” or “make known publicly; proclaim” in your classroom?

I want to celebrate “Kindness” – “Joey was kind to me when he held the door for me.”

I want to celebrate “Volume” – “I read two books this weekend.”

I want to celebrate “Happiness” – “I love this weather!”

I want to celebrate “Friendship” – “I appreciate the gift of time that you spent on following up on a previous conversation.”

I want to celebrate “Writing” – “I wrote an extra blog post!”

I envision generating “celebrate statements” to put in a class fishbowl, to share at a designated time or even to decorate the tree on the classroom door . . .

Can “public naming of actions” develop and sustain a positive mindset and climate in the classroom?

How can we use small steps (and small celebrations) to reinforce our progress towards big goals?
