Learning and Sharing

Don’t Yuck My Yum

When someone shares something that they love and someone else says something like, “That’s gross” or “Football is stupid” or “Pink is  a yucky girl color”, any further conversation stops.  Why would anyone share anything else that they hold near and dear if someone is going to yuck all over it?!

There is a new rule in Lunch Buddies- don’t yuck anyone else’s yum.  It’s rude.  Yukking anyone is just another way of saying “I’m better than you”.  That’s definitely not going to help you make any new friends.

We used this great social story and activity

“Don’t Yuck My Yum!” is a Kid Codes product and available for purchase at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com.  This activity helps students who struggle with that difficult perspective taking skill of not saying something negative about what someone else really likes.

I thought Julia Cook’s new book would fit perfectly with this activity

The Lunch Buddies loved this book

Bragging and “one upping” is yukking on someone’s yum.  Brad learns to turn his bragging and spotlight stealing behavior into thoughtful, encouraging behavior.  He goes from being a One Upper to being a Pull-Upper.

Check out the new yoga pose~

It is called the Tic Tac Toe pose.  It helps build trust and balance.

My Best,
