Word of the month

SEPTEMBER, 2018 WORD OF THE MONTH: INITIATIVE:

SEEING WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND DOING IT.

MAT CHAT TOPIC OF THE MONTH:

RESPONSIBILITY:

RESPONSIBILITY IS THE ABILITY TO ACT INDEPENDENTLY AND MAKE DECISIONS. WHEN WE ARE RESPONSIBILE, WE KNOW WHAT IS EXPECTED OF US. IF WE MAKE A MISTAKE, WE ARE NOT AFRAID TO OWN UP TO IT AND TRY TO FIX THE PROBLEM. EACH OF US IS EXPECTED TO LIVE UP TO OUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND HOLD OURSELVES ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR ACTIONS AND DECISIONS.

DEAR PARENTS AND/OR GUARDIANS:

THIS MONTH WE ARE LEARNING ABOUT RESPONSIBILITY AND WHY IT IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT SKILL TO DEVELOP AND USE. IN OUR CLASS, RESPONSIBILITY IS A BIG DEAL. WE HOLD EACH OF OUR STUDENTS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS AND DECISIONS. WE WANT OUR STUDENTS TO KNOW AND ACCEPT THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES. OUR STUDENTS SHOULD NOT ONLY BE RESPONSIBLE IN OUR CLASS, BUT IN EVERYTHING THEY DO.

HOW CAN YOU HELP??

****HOLD YOUR KIDS RESPONSIBLE FOR DOING THEIR CHORES.

LET THEM KNOW OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF NOT GETTING THEM DONE.

****NEXT TIME YOU MAKE A MISTAKE (AS WE ALL DO)

QUICKLY OWN UP TO IT IN FRONT OF YOUR CHILD AND DISCUSS POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS.

****SET A GOOD EXAMPLE.

MAKE SURE YOU ARE LIVING UP TO YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES. WE ARE THE BEST ROLE MODELS FOR OUR CHILDREN.

HAVE A GREAT MONTH!!
