THE POWER TO SHINE
BY USING YOUR THOUGHTS,WORDS, ACTIONS AND MIND
Learn personal responsibility by taking a look at your own energy.
YOUR WORDS MATTER
All living things are made of matter and all matter is composed of tiny particles that move and vibrate. This vibration is a form of energy- the ability to do work. When the energy in your body exerts force to think and speak, it carries a vibration (or energy) into the thoughts and words that you choose.
This month's lesson is an extraordinary way to give you the physical evidence needed to make better word choices in your daily interactions with others. In the form of a science experiment, children can see for themselves how their words not only affect the people around, but play a big part in their own well-being.
USE YOUR TIME TO SHINE AND NURTURE A STRONG, POSITIVE STATE OF MIND
Making good word choices is a part of mental resilience. When you find yourself in a challenging situation, your mental awareness to pause before choosing a healthy response can benefit everyone involved, including yourself. This means your response is clear, productive and doesn't get overshadowed with reactive behavior.

1. WORD ENERGY SCIENCE EXPERIMENT
One lesson to rule them all! In a battle of love vs. hate, this science experiment is a game-changer at home and in class. Teach your kids social responsibility and greater self-awareness by conducting a simple, fun and effective activity. Inspired by Dr. Masaru Emoto’s scientific findings, you'll use organic matter to see the positive and negative effects of energy. For extra credit, compare and contrast your results with other students and families on the Great Day Academics Instagram page.
2. AFFIRMATIONS FOR THE CLASSROOM
Motivate the magnificent minds of your class by using positive affirmations to start your student's day, highlight their unique qualities and promote a positive learning environment.
Each download purchased this year helps children receive training in Great Day Curriculum and helps us reach classrooms all over the world.
Every penny counts!
Great Day Academics
Children who act out often feel like they have no control over their life circumstances. Empowering students with the understanding of personal responsibility shows them that they do, in fact, have total control over their words, actions and thoughts every minute of the day.
We teach students to use their energy and ability to respond to situations in a way that is healthy for their mental, physical and emotional well-being.
"Telling" children to stay positive is much different than showing them the actual effects.
KIDS WHO KNOW THE POWER OF THEIR MIND
WILL ALWAYS SHINE
DO WHAT'S RIGHT AND SHINE YOUR LIGHT
Much like radio waves and cell phone signals, your words and thoughts are an invisible form of energy frequency.
The law of thermodynamics, also known as the Law of Conservation of Energy, states that energy can not be destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form or another. In terms of human behavior, the energy of your words, once they are spoken, can only be transferred to those whom you are speaking with.
Doing this experiment with my daughter was a wake-up call for us both, and taught our family to be more responsible for the energy behind our voices- giving us the ability to respond with a little more care and compassion in our daily interactions. There are no shortcuts in the area of personal growth for me, but making a habit of being more aware of my thoughts and words for my physical and emotional well-being has been a great place to start.
This too, is my wish for you!
