May 6, 2017.

00:01 - Peggy George
we did not have a required curriculum for character ed when I was a principal but kindness was an expectation!!

00:03 - @plnaugle (Paula)
No, but I used PeekaPak this year to teach social emotional learning skills.

00:35 - Peggy George
We are so grateful to have Tammy doing our closed captioning for every show. :-)

00:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
The focus at my school is more on behavior management vs kindness

00:58 - Peggy George
thanks Paula! I was so impressed with PeekaPak when they presented for us!

01:15 - Peggy George
Maureen, I think that's true in many schools!! :-(

01:34 - Peggy George
I'm so excited to be hearing from Dina Creiger about this amazing program!!!

01:54 - Peggy George

04:49 - Peggy George
Hi Tiziana! Great to see you!!

05:14 - Tiziana Angiolini ( ITALY)
Sorry Peggy for being late! But I was working online

05:34 - Peggy George
so many movements have come about because of someone who feels passionate about a concern they have.

05:44 - Peggy George
Always glad to have you with us Tiziana!

08:04 - @plnaugle (Paula) #2
We established the Essential 12 in our school this year (based on Ron Clark's The Essential 55). Thanks to our 12 essential we notice better interactions among our students on campus.

08:24 - Peggy George
that is a great model Paula!

09:03 - Peggy George
that's the message we need to share with our students! we always have a choice and we should choose to be kind to others

09:48 - @plnaugle (Paula) #2
Every day during our school announcements, the students are reminded of several of our essentials.

09:48 - Peggy George
This is how Dina started her movement with Kickstarter (Choose To Be Nice Kickstarter Campaign)

10:21 - Peggy George
that's a great way to keep those ideas at the top of their minds for the day

10:59 - Peggy George
I think the tendency is to think about the impact others had on us--how did we feel?

11:20 - Peggy George
this is such a simple message and easy to remember!

12:11 - Peggy George
that is so true about the impact of social media! it is 24/7

13:35 - Peggy George (Choose To Be Nice: Make the Promise)

14:07 - Peggy George
interesting distinction between promise and pledge. That makes sense!

15:47 - Peggy George
that is awesome!!! close to one million!!

16:04 - Peggy George
very simple form to complete!!!

16:22 - Peggy George
let's help her get to a million :-)

23:11 - Peggy George
I'll bet the kids love the wristbands :-)

24:47 - Liliane fonseca
How about k-12 ? Ia there any material?

24:57 - Peggy George
I think many of these ideas could be used in your own program models!

25:24 - Peggy George
The program is for elementary so far but they are planning to expand to Middle School and High School

25:37 - Liliane fonseca
Great !

25:43 - Peggy George (Introducing the Nine Nice Mice)

26:10 - Peggy George
these values are very similar in many character education programs

26:35 - Peggy George
they need to be helped to understand what it looks like when they are practicing each of these values

26:58 - Peggy George
I love that they have a home link to continue the conversations at home

27:30 - Peggy George (Choose to Be Nice blog)

27:42 - Peggy George (Follow Choose To Be Nice on Instagram)

29:23 - Peggy George

30:06 - @plnaugle (Paula) #2

30:22 - Peggy George
Are the clubs after school clubs? Who runs them?

31:41 - Peggy George
