Welcome to the 2014-15 School Year!

First Advisory is on Thursday!  We are so anxious and excited to meet everyone and say hello to returning friends.  We have lot of new students this year already, as we look forward to welcoming them.

An idea to get everyone started - PIECE OF THE PUZZLE: Facilitator should cut a puzzle out of poster paper ahead of time.  (There should be one piece for each member of the group.)  Have participants decorate their piece to represent who they are and what they feel they can contribute to the group.  Once participants are done, have them share what they have on their piece.  Participants should them assemble the puzzle.  Facilitator should initiate a discussion on the power of everyone coming together, how much more of an impact a put together puzzle can have, than separate pieces, and how a final product could not be reached without a contribution from every piece of the puzzle.

Zoom and Re-Zoom by Banyai, I.

I love these books for groups activities.  Copy the pages in color, laminate, cut out and have your kiddos try to order them.  A great conversation . . .
