Red Ribbon Week

It's Red Ribbon Week, and we celebrate at my school with wearing certain colors and other things to signify the Pillars of Character and saying no to drugs. This time of year we are also doing Dream Boards where students complete posters of their dreams for the future, including what they want to be, where they want to go to college, and where they want to live. I thought a perfect class meeting lesson this week would be to talk about goal setting. So, we talked about what the students wanted to be when they grow up. I always love that question. This year I got answers from a composer to a scientist to a teacher to a ninja. Haha! Then we talked about how you can't reach goals if you do drugs... one bad choice could change your whole life. Finally I had the students finished the sentence, "I will be drug free so I can become ____________." And they illustrated. I glued them all together on a piece of paper to make a class "quilt." The results were super cute!
