Love your brain! By Teacher Alicia

Teacher Angela mentioned in our last blog post that to be mentally stable you need a certain amount of hugs per day. I agree and I also feel the same way about ‘joobs’.

What’s a ‘joob’ you ask?

It’s a kiss! The X to the O.  The Thai word ‘joob’ translates to kiss.

Throughout our day we do many smart things in English class. Sometimes a student just “WOWs” me so much I want to give them a ‘joob’!  Obviously, I can’t go around ‘joobing’ everyone so instead, I ask the student to ‘joob’ the part of them that proved them to be so smart…their brain.

“But Teacher Alicia, how on earth do I ‘joob’ my brain?” you ask.

It can be done in 4 easy steps! Please follow along below with Sophia.  She will take you through this step-by-step with enthusiasm and love.

There you have it.  A kiss to your brain.  Thanks for the help, Sophia! And thank you to all my little brains for being so smart!

I don’t know about you, but I know my brain feels the love when I give it a ‘joob’. It’s rewarding, encouraging and a great way to keep our brains motivated to learn.

Keep ‘joobing’ away my friends, your brain deserves it!
