Snappy The Turtle

Tuesday, June 2, 2020—Over the last few months, you may have heard from countless sources that we all need to practice self-control as well as adopt healthier hygiene habits to slow the spread of COVID-19. With this in mind, we’d like to introduce you to Snappy - the turtle who is taking over Instagram one coping strategy at a time!

We invite all of our families to participate in this county-wide mental health initiative. Together, we can continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 - one day at a time.
Here’s how to participate:
Step 1: Listen to the 4-minute Snappy story here http://www.wisdomthinkers.org/snappy/
Step 2: Draw and color Snappy by either following Ms. A-B’s instructional video or by using the step-by-step instructions on pg. 3.
Step 3: Think about a strategy or healthy practice you can do to slow the spread COVID-19 and/or to help you practice self-control during a challenging (or frustrating!) moment.
Step 4: Take a picture of you and Snappy practicing those new habits or strategies, e.g. washing your hands, wearing a mask, counting to 3, etc. (See pg. 4 for examples.)
Step 5: Send the picture to your teacher on Classroom Dojo and/or upload the picture to social media with the hashtags: #snappytoslowthespread @wisdomthinkers #americaworkstogether #SANYAtoms @syracuseacademy
Step 6: Create a poster of Snappy and enter the Snappy contest for your chance to win prizes.
 
In addition, we’d like to encourage students to Include Snappy in their SAS ABC Countdown to Summer photos.

ASL Language & Culture Fair

Monday, May 18, 2020—When the pandemic halted everything in the American Sign Language (ASL) interactive classroom, #SASAtoms found a way to share the love of ASL remotely. ASL is a visual 3-D language with a rich cultural background along with facial expressions, body language/movement, and gestures.
