During this month's Leopard League, our fifth graders are learning the art of conversation. The sessions started with a personal reflection of gratitude. Kids jotted down things they appreciate. Then they learned specific skills for engaging with others - tricks for asking questions, listening and responding, and ways to show interest in others with our nonverbal gestures. Next, students practiced sharing their ideas with their groups, and found differences or similarities with their friends. Finally, the groups put their newly found conversation skills to the test while enjoying some cider and doughnuts with their classmates!
