teaching with love and logic

anonymous asked:

what are your favorite things about each sign?

Ohh this is so cute!!

This is less so Sun sign, more archetypal of how they appear/act with me, so check your Moon/Rising/Dominant

Aries is passionate and impulsive, and I love how young and vibrant their souls are.

Taurus is blunt and precise, and I love their refined style and how they’ll tell it how it is.

Gemini is laid-back and spontaneous, and I love how they can let loose and have a good time no matter the situation.

Cancer is nurturing and kind, and I love how they make you feel so safe and secure when you maybe aren’t having a great time.

Leo is bright and generous, and I love how their confidence rubs off on you when you’re around them.

Virgo is gentle and loving, and I love how they’re so occupied with giving others genuinely thoughtful advice.

Libra is peaceful and humble, and I love how they compliment everyone on their make up or outfit, without batting an eyelid that they are the most beautiful in the room.

Scorpio is deep and caring, and I love how they are looking out for you even when you don’t think they are.

Sagittarius is fun and free, and I love how they’ll show you the world and teach you about life.

Capricorn is logical and thoughtful, and I love how they’ll tell you the truth where no one else has the guts to.

Aquarius is comedic and fun-loving, and I love how we can laugh for hours over seemingly little things.

Pisces is empathetic and helpful, and I love how they’d go to the extra mile to see you smile or to see someone got what they deserved.

"What do YOU think I think?"

My question of the day.

After reading a chapter in Love and Logic, this was one of their “magic phrases.” I decided to try it out for myself, instead of directly telling the child what they should do.

(student is typing in his own name in the google search engine instead of the person he is researching)
Me: What do you think I think?
Student: That I should be looking up Andrew Carnegie.

(student walks into room chewing gum)
Me: What do you think I think?
Student: I need to spit out my gum (spits out gum) 

(student is under his desk)
Me: What do you think I think?
Student: (Blank confused stare)

You win some, you lose some. :)

Try it out!

Love and Logic - Questions:

Sine rehearsed phrases may serve us well in situations where there are emotional issues involved (e.g., classroom disruptions, irate parents, or an angry student. […]

  • What would you like to happen?
  • Would you like my thinking on that?
  • Is it possible that…?
  • How do you feel about…?
  • Is there a chance that…?
  • How do you suppose that might work out?
  • What do you think I think?
  • On a scale of 1-10, how good a decision do you think that is?
  • Would you like to hear what others have tried? (pg 179)

Would you use these in your classroom?  Are there any others you’d add to the list?
