00:16 - Peggy George
Encouragement in the Classroom!!!!

00:18 - Carolyn Stanley
It's amazing how many times those negative comments can wound and be played over and over in our minds. It's so important for teachers to be careful their comments are not misunderstood.

00:41 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
SO true, Carolyn,... we sometimes need to push our own pause button

00:41 - Peggy George
We are so grateful for the closed captioning!! Thank you Tammy!

00:44 - @shamblesguru (Thailand iPad)
Tammy is amazing …how many years now?

00:51 - Carolyn Stanley
Negativity has no place in the classroom.

00:55 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
no worries!

01:36 - @shamblesguru (Thailand iPad)
I know …you put the wrong topic on purpose in order to instill emotion .....

01:59 - Dejan Kreculj

02:05 - Nenad Đpić
Hello Dejan

02:15 - Carolyn Stanley
You know - teachers need encouragement and support, as well. Administrators need to provide an encouraging environment for staff as well as students.

My son is a para I the special Ed dept at a school in my former district. I plan on passing on what I learn to him.

04:42 - Peggy George
I can definitely relate to being nervous before presentations!!

04:55 - Peggy George (Joan Young’ blog)

04:55 - Carolyn Stanley
My principal told me just that back in 1969 when I started teaching English in a junior high school.

05:06 - Peggy George
I used to hear that all the time!!

06:47 - Peggy George (Joan Young on Twitter)

06:48 - Karen L @klirenmsn
I am only seeing a white screen. Is that my internet?

06:54 - Peggy George
Welcome careeson

07:06 - Peggy George

07:15 - Peggy George
yes that's your internet Karen

07:39 - SusanSi
3rd grade math & science...I smile too much?!!!!!

07:47 - Peggy George
students really need to know we believe in them!!

07:55 - Karen L @klirenmsn
Peggy any idea how to fix this? I was seeing the other ones.

07:56 - @plnaugle (Paula)
This year I am teaching 4th graders ELA and Social Studies in a suburb of New Orleans.

08:02 - @careeson
Thanks Peggy, I'm glad to get to participate

08:19 - Lorie Moffat
log out and back in, Karen?

08:23 - Carolyn Stanley
I'm a retired teacher, but I still have connections with my old school and am still passionate about education.

08:23 - SusanSi
I love encouraging them to build self confidence

08:26 - Peggy George
I found this great blog post this week on that topic! (Lori Gard: What Students Remember Most About Teachers)

09:20 - Amanda 2
Hi everyone! I'm Amanda and I teach 4th grade in Los Altos, CA (Bay Area). I am friends with Joan's former student teacher (Nicole), with whom I went through the credential program.

09:27 - Peggy George
great point! we need to be able to handle the emotions the kids bring to us!

09:35 - Doug Henry
I wonder how autistic teachers notice and manage student emotions?

09:43 - Peggy George
Love that!!! "Name them to tame them" :-)

09:50 - @careeson
I'm Clarissa and I teach 3rd grade all subjects.

09:55 - Amanda 2
Love this topic- I can't wait to hear what Joan has to say about it. Also looking forward to reading her book.

10:14 - Peggy George
time is always the big barrier for teachers!

10:21 - Peggy George
Hi Louise! Great to see you!

10:24 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise
Late to the party. Sorry.

10:41 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Louise. :)

10:43 - Peggy George
too often when we reflect on our day we remember what went wrong rather than what went right!

10:58 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise
hi Paula.

11:28 - @careeson
It's so important to reflect on our teaching so that we can pinpoint what's happening in the room at the time they are all engaged.

11:35 - Peggy George
how often each day should you ask students to reflect on how their day is going? after each class? end of day?

11:43 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Having class celebrations at the end of each class is a great way to reflect on positives.

11:53 - Peggy George
those transition times are definitely challenging!

12:10 - Peggy George
Hi clinds!! Welcome!

12:35 - Peggy George
great idea!

12:57 - @careeson
I like to have a class discussion on what went well and what we could change to improve the next time

12:58 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I'm using for fun brain breaks. It is great to see the kids dancing, laughing, and enjoying the movements.

13:02 - Peggy George
so many class rules are what not to do...

13:22 - Peggy George
thanks Paula! Joan will be mentioning that and it's in the Livebinder :-)

13:30 - Peggy George
Hi Jan!! So glad you could join us!

I've been thinking about giving gonoodle a try.

14:06 - @janwells
Hi took me forever to get in to the room this time.

14:08 - Amanda 2
LOVE GoNoodle! My grade level team just started using it this year and the kids love it!

14:16 - Peggy George
I love this article! It's in the Livebinder. (25 Ways to Ask Your Kids “ow Was School Today?”without asking them “How Was School Today?”

Hi glad to be here with you all!

15:01 - @careeson
I'll make go noodle a goal for this next week.

15:26 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@careson Your students will love GoNoodle.

15:47 - Peggy George
I put a great (short) video with Barbara Fredrickson talking about her key points for Positive Emotions.

15:55 - Peggy George
Welcome Cindy!

16:13 - @careeson
@plnaugle thanks for encouraging me

16:26 - Carolyn Stanley
Oh my, I so understand that power of negativity. I try so hard to not let it rule me.

16:35 - Peggy George (Todd Kashdan: Curious)

16:47 - Carolyn Stanley
I internalize it too much.

17:11 - Peggy George
John Medina is one of my favorites!

17:14 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I was having a hard time keeping a very positive attitude, but I made it through. I've had 38 students since school started on August 8. We finally will be adding a new 4th grade teacher on Monday. Phew! I'll have 27 next week.

17:33 - Amanda 2
Playground conflict can definitely be brought into the classroom and distract students... I struggle with managing this!

Her website features the insights and publications pertaining to parent and teacher strategies to ignite student learning.)

17:47 - Peggy George
what a big smile!!

17:56 - @janwells
WOW, thankful for a new teacher coming on board

18:37 - Peggy George
I agree Amanda! Also cafeteria issues both during breakfast and lunch. I also found that the school bus drivers and crossing guards effect how the day starts for students.

18:40 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise
yeah. We have that too. I have mixed feelings.

19:15 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Jan it has been a challenging beginning for sure. Thank goodness the students have been very good for the most part.

Using class dojo to give positive feedback for positive actions.

19:24 - @careeson
When my students come in to class and I notice someone who looks like they've had a rough morning I have them do brain drain. They take out their notebooks and for one minute drain their brain of what ever they need to clear out. Seems to help them move on with their day.

19:25 - Peggy George
GoNoodle (movement and brain breaks)

19:35 - Peggy George
great list!!!

19:45 - Peggy George
do you have anything you would add to that list?

20:10 - Peggy George
Routines and Rituals
Time dedicated to exploration of fascination

20:34 - Peggy George
what a fantastic idea Careeson!!!

20:52 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Our drama students do the school-wide morning announcements. They always end with jokes and riddles.

21:21 - Carolyn Stanley
Kids love feeling important and useful.

21:26 - Peggy George
have you heard that story about the "troubles tree" where the man stops at the tree and hangs his troubles on it before he enters the house? Always loved that image!

21:28 - Amanda 2
Love this job idea! We have a class jobs/class cash system and this would be a great addition to our list.

22:04 - Peggy George
what are some of the strategies you use to get kids back after a particularly rowdy activity?

22:34 - Carolyn Stanley
17 students - nice class size

22:41 - Peggy George
music has so many great uses in the classroom! many teachers use it to transition activities

22:51 - Peggy George
hahaha!!! you counted them? :-)

23:24 - Peggy George
Dr. Jean's chants are fantastic for regrouping kids!

Calming chime sounds online -

23:51 - @careeson
I like to pull them close after a rowdy activity. Usually we move the rug and I to them. They love being read to and I love the calmness it brings.

23:57 - Peggy George
thanks Paula!!!

24:32 - Peggy George
super @Careeson! Kids really pick up on your emotional state :-)

25:21 - Peggy George
even though clap, clap, clap always works... :-) so true that variety is good so they have to keep listening

25:37 - @careeson
I agree music is an essential tool to use in the class. So many benefits.

25:50 - Peggy George
accents are so much fun!!! so are puppets!!!

25:53 - @careeson
I agree Joan about the accents!

26:45 - Peggy George
what does the research say about how often we should change the activity in a classroom? every 15 minutes?

27:02 - Peggy George
that would give some teachers/admins nightmares...

27:16 - Peggy George
even though it's a great idea!

27:17 - @careeson
I teach Morphology with different singing. Some weeks it's opera, country, or rock and roll. They look forward to Thursday's Morphology lessons!

27:29 - stace 3
do these strategies work for those challenging teen years

27:55 - Natalie McKalip
Peggy,Changing activities depends on the age group you are working with.

27:58 - Peggy George (Joan Young: The Power of Awe, Fascination and Wonder)

28:14 - Renee Redmond

28:19 - Peggy George
I wonder about that Natalie because I've heard something similar about adult learning :-)

28:21 - Carolyn Stanley
I worked primarily with grade 7 and8 - only saw kids for 42 minute blocks

28:51 - Cindy Medeiros
I think the chimes would work for teens, or use rap music

28:51 - Peggy George
did you have the students bring in photos for that board?

29:05 - Peggy George
they would love that!!

29:48 - Peggy George
that happens so often!! outstanding teachers get all of the challenging students!

30:07 - Cindy Medeiros
Sounds like Genius hour

30:09 - @shamblesguru (Thailand iPad)
One day desktops will be interactive touch screens .…err .…there will be no desks .…what do you think?

30:20 - Peggy George
it does sound similar :-) but I love the name

30:31 - Natalie McKalip
I usually switch activities three times during my middle school art lessons. My students are required to move for multiple reasons during each period.

30:45 - Peggy George
so true Shamblesguru and already happening in some classrooms but not the norm

31:03 - Peggy George
I love those whiteboard desks :-)

31:23 - Peggy George
that picture would generate a lot of conversation!!!

31:33 - @careeson
@ paulanaugle did you share a story board for making movies sometime recently if so could you send that link again... please.

32:07 - Peggy George
thanks Natalie! That's a great guidelines for MS :-)

32:14 - @mrsmorgansclass - Louise
write about

32:26 - Natalie McKalip
I have been collecting animal portraits on Pinterest for the AWE factor.

32:49 - Peggy George
hahaha!!! kids will remember those moments forever!

33:07 - Natalie McKalip
I laugh at myself daily.

33:26 - Peggy George
much better to teach them to laugh at themselves and not at others :-)

33:37 - Tina S 2
Good point Peggy!

33:56 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@careeson I found this one in my Google Docs -

34:09 - Peggy George
Grammar Funnies from Grammarly

34:14 - Amanda 2
Definitely. I like the idea of modeling laughing at your own mistakes- hard to convince a student to laugh at his/her mistake if he/she is serious, embarrassed, so doing it yourself is huge

34:19 - Peggy George
Grammarly pinterest board is in the Livebinder

34:24 - Natalie McKalip
Thanks for that link.

35:16 - @careeson
Thanks Paula

35:33 - Peggy George
love that idea! when they see the pictures it will really help them to share their feelings

35:34 - Tina S 2
Like that tip - as a parent too

35:40 - Renee Redmond
Great ideas

35:50 - @careeson
Such a great idea to address stress openly.

35:54 - Karen L @klirenmsn
Joan is rocking this!

35:54 - Peggy George (Todd Kashdan: Curious)

36:43 - Peggy George
I love Tom Barrett's new book about curiosity! This blog post is great too. (Tom Barrett: Encouraging Curiosity is not Enough)

37:14 - Peggy George
so cute!!!

37:35 - Natalie McKalip
Love the Smores!

37:36 - Peggy George
food is always a great way to celebrate :-)

37:59 - @careeson
Cute idea with smores.

38:01 - Peggy George
those are terrific drawings they created!

38:28 - Carolyn Stanley
They have totally banned cupcakes and sweet treats for birthdays at a local elementary school.

38:29 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I've signed up for Jen Wagner's O.R.E.O. Project. Glad I can do food activities with my students.

38:32 - Peggy George
the "cool off" image is delightful and would make you smile which would definitely help to change your mood :-)

39:17 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Joan, I have used Dan Pink's What Your Sentence? too. Love seeing what my students write down.

39:47 - Peggy George

40:05 - @plnaugle (Paula)
What is Your Sentence? -

40:05 - Peggy George
Dan Pink's video is in our Livebinder today

40:50 - Peggy George
this reframing would be great for any transition grades like elementary to middle school, etc.

41:49 - Tina S 2
Awesome !

42:11 - @janwells
I like that!

42:20 - @careeson
Brilliant... walk around it!

42:21 - Eileen
Love that!

42:28 - Karen L @klirenmsn
I am so sorry I haven

42:32 - Renee Redmond
Love that.

42:35 - Tina S 2
Notice - mindfulness - transparency

42:45 - Karen L @klirenmsn
I am so sorry I haven

42:57 - Karen L @klirenmsn
yike issues with my chat skills

43:02 - @shamblesguru (Thailand iPad)
Do you think this is a cultural issue …would it be a different conversation if working with. UK or Thai teachers? .…question for the end

43:32 - Tina S 2
Good question !

44:03 - Karen L @klirenmsn
Our saying has been "Brush it off" to get read of the yucky feelings you have when someone says something that hurts you

44:10 - @shamblesguru (Thailand iPad)
or a different conversation is different nationalities in your classroom

44:17 - @shamblesguru (Thailand iPad)

44:32 - Peggy George
those photos capture so many great memories and experiences!

44:51 - Peggy George
brush it off is a great phrase!

45:07 - Peggy George
I love this passage by Barbara Fredrickson!!

45:17 - @shamblesguru (Thailand iPad)
Human Beings are quite amazing animals

45:22 - stidmama

45:32 - Peggy George
"feel" is the key word!!! We need to pay attention to our feelings

45:41 - @careeson
Thanks for sharing that slide.

45:52 - Peggy George
Fabulous presentation Joan! Thank YOU so much!!

45:52 - Natalie McKalip

45:53 - Amanda 2
That is beautiful, I really want to share that with my class!

45:56 - Renee Redmond
AWESOME. And not just because you're my sister.

45:56 - Žljka Bojić

45:57 - Eileen
I would love to share this with my students and parents at back to school night!

46:00 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Thank you, Joan. I'm feeling very positive! :)

46:01 - @janwells
I hadn't heard that before. Thanks for sharing.

46:22 - Žljka Bojić
Tnx Joan!

46:24 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Virtual applause for Joan. Great presentation.

46:34 - Peggy George
turn your mic on Joan

46:40 - Peggy George

46:48 - Tina S 2
That's was more - a question of encouraging transparency

46:54 - Minelle
Great session. Thank you!

47:07 - stidmama
This was really helpful -- my third graders are starting to get comfortable (end of the "honeymoon") and we are going to need a lot of these ideas!

47:14 - Carolyn Stanley
This was so inspiring. Thank you, Joan.

47:15 - Radojka
Thank you!

47:19 - Tina S 2
Ooh like 'normalizing ' emotions

47:26 - Tina S 2

47:28 - @plnaugle (Paula)
One teacher I know has a mirror on her door at children's eye level. They have to check their emotion (face) as they enter the room.

47:31 - Peggy George
look how many problems have come from thinking "real men don't cry"!!

47:47 - Dejan Kreculj #2
Thank you !

47:48 - Carolyn Stanley
Lost audio

47:49 - stidmama
sound died?

47:57 - Suzana Petrovic

48:11 - Peggy George
try turning your mic off Joan and then turn it back on

48:23 - Peggy George

48:26 - technoclown
Great presentation, thanks!

48:28 - stace 3
Love the what is your sentence as a strategy for teens

48:51 - @careeson
Thank you for sharing so many terrific ideas this morning.

49:47 - Tina S 2
Thank you Joan - I'm bringing this into my home with 2 teenagers who might be facing 'possibly' a stressful year...

50:03 - Cindy Medeiros
Yes, they are all individuals

50:21 - Peggy George
I love that mirror idea Paula for checking own faces as they enter the room. Sometimes we're not aware that we have a frown on our face...

50:35 - Carolyn Stanley
Classroom 2.0 delivers the best PD you can find.

50:46 - Peggy George
thanks Carolyn! :-)

50:53 - Amanda 2
Love the mirror idea- I think I need that, too, to make sure I'm not guilty of the same thing we're asking students not to do! :)

51:16 - Bobby Song
Would you put the mirror on the outside of door?

51:16 - Peggy George
that's exactly what I was thinking Amanda!

51:22 - stace 3
school can be stressful especially the adolescent years...teens need to tap into some of these strategies but teachers need to know how to bring them to the students

51:35 - Peggy George
any other questions???

51:51 - Tina S 2
Loved it Joan!

51:53 - stidmama
This has been so helpful -- thank you for this!

52:07 - Renee Redmond
Can we access an archive of this?

52:11 - Amanda 2
Thank you, Joan! I sincerely appreciate your advice and tips! Looking forward to reading your book and sharing with my colleagues.

52:13 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
:-) thank you all!!

52:13 - Lorie Moffat
Yes, later

52:37 - Carolyn Stanley
Have a flourishing day!

52:39 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Yes the archive will be postedon the classroom2.0 site

52:44 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
You too, Carolyn!

52:51 - Renee Redmond
Thank you!

53:01 - stidmama
have to run -- have a great week everyone!

53:08 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Bobby I would put the mirror when students can see it when entering your room.

53:09 - Renee Redmond
So proud of you Joan!

53:13 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Looking at these great ideas..

53:17 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)

53:19 - @janwells
Thanks Joan. I'll be going back to revisit this after posted. :)

53:40 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)

55:03 - Tina S 2
You go girl!

55:15 - Joan Young (@flourishingkids)
Aww.. thanks so much for coming, Karen! Good luck with your presentation... you wont need it though!

55:29 - Karen L @klirenmsn
Joan I'll feel better when my slides are ready.

55:50 - Peggy George

55:52 - Karen L @klirenmsn
Yes, I can easily talk about usiing the world to learn with and how Google can help you do that.

56:01 - Peggy George (Host Your Own Webinar details)

56:14 - Peggy George
that's a great way to offer PD to your teachers and it's completely free!

56:27 - Peggy George

56:42 - Peggy George
Please nominate someone--you can nominate yourself!!!

56:47 - @careeson
how do I save the chat?

56:54 - Peggy George
we really love hearing from the teachers!

57:05 - Peggy George

58:00 - Peggy George
we have a new PD certificate!! :-) I'm still learning how to use the merge on Google Drive so I hope I haven't missed anyone.

58:24 - Eileen
Thanks Peggy:)

58:24 - Peggy George
