Celebrating Mental Health

Our librarian this year set up a bunch of activities to have students think about mental health, a good topic as we move closer to the end of the quarter and final grades.

I went with my students primarily to spend some time outside the classroom (we’re all a little mentally done) and to show them where they might be able to find books at their level.

We planted flowers and played with toys called Spheros, controlled through an app on their iPads. The task was to follow a path taped on the floor, which is really harder than it looks.

While they were playing (or waiting for their turns), I grabbed a bunch of low level books. Unfortunately, I didn’t get pictures of that part. But they all were taking turns reading books they could actually read. It was such a beautiful thing, watching literacy happen.

If you give them resources, they will jump in. And it’s an amazing thing.
