November’s Assembly – Shubert’s BIG Voice…Practicing Assertiveness

Posted on December 4, 2018

Our November focus is teaching our students how to use their BIG voices to speak up when they don’t like something that is happening. Our school had an assembly at the end of November. We read “Shubert’s BIG Voice” that taught students how to use their assertive voice. Shubert the lightning bug showed us that his words are more powerful than hands that hit or feet that kick. Shubert also finds that using assertive words has power.

Using your Assertive Voice
“I don’t like it when you push me. Walk around me please.”

“I don’t like it when you take my spot in line. If you want to stand there, just ask me.”

“I don’t like it when you call me names. Please call me by my name.”
