Character Word for January
To catch up from the past few months, here is some information about our character word for January: RESPONSIBILITY!
Doing your part to take care of yourself,
your classroom, your home, and our world –
even when no one is watching.
For Responsibility, character education lessons included helping students identify ways in which they can be responsible for themselves (ex. brushing teeth, getting dressed), their classroom (ex. cleaning up, classroom jobs), home (ex.chores, caring for a pet), and world (ex. picking up trash, recycling, saving water). Students read "The Earth Book" by Todd Parr and had the opportunity to make classroom earth books with ways to take care of our planet.
