I think I found myself again. My outlook on life is brighter!
From past classes I’ve taken, I knew this would be worth my time and good for my mental health.
I sure have enjoyed this study/ application of laughter in the classroom and in life!!! I just finished up a 2-week unit with 5th graders (outlined in my reflection), and it was a HUGE success!!!! Kids were so engaged and so happy the entire time! I felt like it really brought students together, and some students’ demeanor changed for the better. Kids were truly beaming each time they left class. I want to add on to this lesson by incorporating 3D projects and expanding to younger grades. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and for teaching material that is SO valuable!!!!
