Creativity

People whose signature character strength is creativity are good at thinking of new ways of doing things.

What do you do with an Idea? by Kobe Yamada is a great story about an idea that just wouldn’t go away. 

Another book that shows creative thinking is;

Stuck by Oliver Jeffers

Wisdom

At Barwon Heads PS we define wisdom as: “My friends think that I am wise. I understand what is important in life.”

 

Some of the activities that we have been doing in class this week have included;

Having students read (or read to them) one of AESOP’s fables and have them identify the wisdom in the story.

 

Have students look for words of wisdom (or wise quotes) on the internet. Have them make a poster for the quote that they feel best represents them or something that they believe strongly.

 

Have students write a letter to a student coming into their grade level next year. Include some words of wisdom.

 

In our class we discussed the importance of not just being a bystander when witnessing an injustice; stand up for what is right.

Some of our favourite picture story books contain words of wisdom…….

 

Can you think of a friend, family member or someone else who you look up to who has showed wisdom?
