In 4th and 5th grade students watch videos of students dealing with school problems and work together to identify ways that the students in the videos can deal with these problems in an effective way. We also do many role plays during our lessons and the students typically love the role plays. It's fun to see all of the different personalities emerge during the role plays. Last week we worked on understanding empathy, as well as improving our listening skills through some engaging activities.
