Respect and positive thinking

Tinc Road third-graders are learning to lead healthy lives through Footsteps for Life, a program from Morris County Prevention is Key. In the six weekly sessions, students are taught strategies for making good decisions, interpersonal skills, cultural respect, peer pressure, and peaceful conflict resolution. Weekly homework assignments and educational sheets reinforce the lessons between classes and help involve parents in the learning experience.

The program gives students the opportunity to practice in a fun way the skills they had learned. The third-graders use puppets, a signature of the program, to role-play and act out various scenarios that might occur in real life, including those involving peer conflict.

"The students seem to love it," said Lisa Barba, school counselor. "Coping skills are incredibly important and the program teaches students how to resolve conflicts in a productive way. The program also helps them realize the importance of being considerate. They learn they have a voice that can affect the feelings and behaviors of others."

Mrs. Barba built on some of those same themes during the Week of Respect, an annual statewide initiative in which schools provide instruction on preventing/remediating harassment and intimidation. Various activities were scheduled during the week, including special spirit wear days to recognize positive character traits.

Mrs. Barba is also presenting a special lesson this month to every class in the school to highlight the importance of respect and kindness in everyday life. With every class she is reading "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" The award-winning story teaches the importance of giving, sharing, and caring, and also provides reminders of the benefits of positive thinking and positive behavior. After the reading, Mrs. Barba engages students in an age-appropriate companion activity that reinforces the messages in the book.
