A huge part of being a helpful member of a caring classroom community is the art of being aware of the way we speak to each other. When we are conscious of the words and phrases we use, even in jest, we recognize the power of our words. It is important for students to have a voice in the classroom community. These types of discussions help students feel listened to and appreciated. The Let’s Stick Together puppet skit video sets the stage for a wonderful conversation about sticking together.
Students watch the Let’s Stick Together puppet skit video and collaboratively discuss and create common classroom language that is supportive of others.
