As I was brainstorming ideas and feeling that something would come together this video came out:
I was quickly realizing that I didn't have time to make things happen the way I wanted them to go, but I was so grateful that a friend of mine caught the vision and took it even further than I envisioned.
She is now doing activities each Wednesday during e-time that focus on that monthly theme. We just started, but it is catching on and the students are enjoying it.
Today my son came home and told me that during e-time he saw some awesome video clips. He was so excited to show me one of the videos and my boys have played it over and over again. My 4th grader wanted me to share it with his teacher so she could show her class.
This is what I wanted to have happen. I wanted students to catch the vision and share it and spread it to their friends. I truly don't know how many students will be changed with the program, but if we can have an impact on one student we have succeeded.
Here is the video he is so excited about:
I hope that that all of us can take the challenge to BE THE ONE!!! Be the one to make a difference in someone's life each and every day. It can be as simple as a smile or holding a door open for someone or making a call to a friend or family member, etc. Encourage your children to each Be the One each day.
