Woodbury Advisory: March
A guide to activities and themes to cover with advisory classes.
Read Across America Day March 2nd- Complete on Wednesday, March 3rd in Advisory
NEA’s Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place every March for Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing people together by reading.
Also, encourage your students to bring in their own favorite book/reading material to advisory to share or read!
We will be staying in our own advisories this year.
Spread the Word to End the Word- 2021 Theme: Inclusion
Connection is not only a relationship, but a shared strength developed between individuals. A strength where two individuals can feel seen, heard, and valued. This upcoming year, Spread the Word will explore the need for connection and how individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities need to be seen, heard, and valued in order to develop the skills of inclusion to build connection.
March is the month for “Spread the Word: Inclusion.” Best Buddies is asking all of Woodbury, both staff and students to join the cause Below is a link that will take you to the webpage where you can individually make the pledge. The official day in 2019 for spread the word to end the word is March 6th. We ask that anyone who makes the Pledge to Spread the Word Connection also sign their names on the bulletin board outside of the Health & Wellness hall here at school.
Play the Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun video for your advisory.
After watching, have the students discuss what they think the story is about.
Then watch the self esteem video.
Discuss the following based on the videos:
If people put you down enough you can start to believe it. Has that ever happened to you? How does it affect your self-esteem when people say insulting or unkind things to you? (ask for examples) What can you do about it when that happens?
After watching the videos discuss the following questions:
Do you think you have to "prove yourself" in some way in order to deserve high self-esteem? - Do you have to be great at something? - Do you have to be super-popular or part of the "in-crowd?" - Do you have to be terrifically good-looking? - Is there any reason why someone should not be entitled to have good self-esteem?
