On Wednesday, we supported our ONE WORD for the week which was NO by wearing our own ONE word for the year on our shirts, face, arm, sign...whatever. Here is a pic of our class with their one word.
In our GE group, Great Expectations, where we have a mixture of k-2 students or 3-5 students, come to us each Wednesday for good citizenship lessons etc, we made a poster to show that we have the power to say NO!
Here was our group's poster using Pic Collage. (Have I mentioned how much I like that app?)
The next day, was RED OUT against drugs and every single one of my kids participated and wore red! We also had a pep rally that afternoon for our Marcus Marauder football team. We are the only elementary school in the district to have a pep rally for our high school with all the football players, cheerleaders and coaching staff involved. The kids loved it, of course, and it gives them a great sense of pride in their future high school.
On Friday, to wrap up the week, we wore our mismatched socks. Didn't get a pic of that day. It was a great week and I hope the kids always remember the importance of teaming up against something that will certainly rob them of their ONE WORD!
