Build Meaningful Connections With Your Students
The key to building meaningful connections is by asking insightful questions. Asking the right questions can give students the opportunity to open up and help us explore their thinking and better understand their main motivational drivers. The best type of questions for students are open-ended questions because those open a conversation up for further discussion.
The questions and prompts in the Student Edition of the Grateful Deck will encourage self expression, nurturing strong communication skills and strengthening the teacher/student relationship. The more you talk, the more you know each other, and the closer and more connected you'll feel to your students,
When kids feel seen and heard, they cultivate self-love and self-trust. And when you equip children to express themselves from a young age, they grow up knowing who they are, which cultivates self-acceptance.
Set aside a few minutes each day to draw a card from the Student Deck and have your students take turns answering. You’ll be inspiring personal development at an early age.
