Ask if You Don't Understand
How to incorporate the study skill: If you don't understand what a teacher says or what an assignment is asking you to do, ASK the teacher. It is possible others in the class don't understand either.
Modesty is having self respect. When you practice modesty, you are not showy or boastful. Modesty comes when you have self-acceptance and quiet pride. Modesty is to value yourself and to have a sense of respectful privacy about your body. Modesty is also accepting praise with humility and gratitude.
"I am modest. I have no need to brag. I dress in a way that shows respect for myself and others. I protect myself from disrespectful attention"
Black History Month Snapshots
February is Black History month and each day before bringing the kids to class I will be sharing a quick snapshot of a different person or event in honor of Black History month. Take a moment to ask your students about our snapshot chat when they come to class.
A few of our third grade students are doing their "Pizza Box" book report on Frederick Douglas.
I'd thought I share this educational video with you.
Thank you for joyfully serving our children each week.
Have a wonderful weekend- Vera
