We are learning to make smart choices!


As a part of our PSE (Personal and Social Education) Programme, the first grades worked on developing critical thinking and decision making. They used the "Choices Choices" software based on the topic "In the Playground".

This interactive tool helped them to become more assertive when making relatively difficult decisions on a daily basis at school -especially regarding social issues. Children need to develop skills, confidence and awareness to approach these situations wisely.

They were presented with familiar, realistic dilemmas such as:

  • Including a new boy who is different
  • Choosing a game during break time
  • Time management
  • Peer pressure
  • Empathy

Through these activities they saw that each action and decision they make has consequences. The children then went through the process of setting goals, analyzing options, predicting outcomes, making choices and evaluating the success of their actions.

The First Graders worked together in groups developing social communication and collaboration skills and had lots of fun while learning very important abilities and concepts!
