So... Sometimes I share a motivational quote or video, like this week. Here's the link to the video if you want to watch (I think he's even more excited than I am!)
Or sometimes I start with a silly question to answer. This way, students start the week thinking about something that makes them feel GOOD or ponders the possibilities of what might happen if they do focus their energy on positive intentions. Either way, I get to know a little bit more about my students.
