I CAN talk about SEL
today at 1 on Facebook Live!  See you soon!

Read your class the classic story of "The Little Engine That Could." Explain that in your classroom everyone says "I CAN" like the little engine. Remind them that we are AmeriCANS and not Americant's!

I Think I Can (Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)

I think I can are words I like to say.

I think I can are words I like to say.

In time I’ll get it right if I try with all my might.

I think I can are words I like to say.

Hint! Cover a Pringle's can with paper and glue on googly eyes. Pass the “eye can” around to remind children to say I CAN!!

We Can Help                                                                        
Tear off the front and back of your “Yellow Pages” to use for the outside of this book. Make inside pages for the book that say, “We are good readers.” “We can help you with the computer.” “We can tie shoes.” “We are good spellers.” “We like to draw.” “We are mathematicians.” “We like to clean.” (Include pages that represent the different academic skills, as well as common tasks in the classroom.) Encourage children to sign up on the pages where they can help others. When someone comes to you for help, remind them to look in the “Class Yellow Pages.”
