  • Words can help and hurt October 23, 2014

    Mambrino third-graders finished a project on self-esteem with a music performance on Tuesday. Students have been working on a project with the driving question, “How do positive words affect the way we feel about ourselves and others?” Students previously brainstormed with counselor Pam Thompson and made a list of positive words that could be used to describe classmates. Following that, they had a Gallery Walk with Thompson and librarian Kathy Anderson to use their lists to place positive words on their classmates’ personal posters. In English/language arts classes, students reflected on the words on their posters, and students wrote in their journals about what words meant the most to them and how these words made them feel.
