'Praise of the Week' in Year 4

Our current whole-school social skill focus for Term 3 is 'Encouraging Others'. It has been very pleasing to see students put into action what they have been learning. Here is
what the Year 4 class have been focussing on: We have been implementing a variety of ways to encourage others in Year Four. After discussing how important it is to be positive and celebrate the achievements of others we introduced a 'Praise of the Week'. Our favourite so far has been 'Excellent, Excellent', which we say whilst doing a big X with our arms. These short and simple praises have allowed us to motivate our peers quickly and effectively. Excellent, excellent!
