Positive Daily Start in Our Schools to Promote Respect, Compassion, Confidence, etc.

This year, THE Office of REadaptation and the Special Ed department is implementing  a program called Positive Daily Start (PDS).

The Positive Daily Start (PDS) program is composed of 181 Short daily lessons, weekly topics, parent letters, and follow-up classroom activities for elementary and middle school students. The daily lessons—which include student-inspiring role models, skits, and tips to be used at home and in school—may be read during morning announcements. They’re a great way to start each day. The classroom activities may also be used during classroom guidance sessions. Weekly parent/guardian letters support the program and help reinforce the lessons. PDS is an easy-to-use, year-round program that will promote peace, love, empathy, individuality, strength, and friendship among students.

Rationale behind the PDS

A proactive, preventive program, PDS focuses on the school as a whole and emphasizes behaviors that cultivate and support respect, friendship, individuality, love and compassion. Daily lessons that include inspirational role models, fun and lively skits, and goals to achieve at home and in school; it teaches and reinforce positive behaviors. In order to prevent such behaviors as aggression, bullying, violence, and relational aggression, we must teach our students to cultivate empathy and courage, to think about the feelings of others, respect themselves and others, and stand up for their own rights and the rights of others.

Morning Announcements

Morning announcement will be an ideal time to present our daily PDS Lessons to the entire student body. This is a great way to start the day! We could play wake-up music to get everybody attention before reading the short lesson. Usually, student loved the music and looked forward to hearing each day’s lesson…

Every Friday at my previous school, each classroom teacher nominates as student of the week whichever of his/her student’s best met the goal for that week. The following Monday, the names of student winners were announced. The winning students were called to the office, where they received award ribbons. Of course our school is already implementing the Student of the month recognition where pictures of the student are taken. The system work very well. But for weekly award recognition, we can give special treats such as ice cream, etc.

TEACHING IS A CALLING FROM THE GREAT CREATOR

 

Teaching starts from a heart full of love, compassion and joy!

Every teacher should have a joyful and loving heart every single day; kids can feel it and respond to it...

TRUE PASSION, FORGIVENESS, HUMILITY AND UNLIMITED LOVE IS THE ANSWER TO EVERY PROBLEM IN THE SCHOOL!

Don’t ask what your school can do for you, but what can you do for your school every day!
