Dear Lincoln Park Families,
Our character trait for the month of October is RESPECT. We have been very busy learning about respect, what it means, why it’s important and how to do it! Learning happens best when it is done both at school and at home. Below are many ways that you can help your child continue to learn about the theme of respect through reading about it, talking about it, and practicing it!
Character Word Spotlight: Respect
READ ABOUT IT!
Here are some books to help you learn more about RESPECT.
-Rude Cakes by Rowboat Watson
-Dude That’s Rude by Pamela Espeland
-Do Unto Otters by Laurie Keller
Think about the specific needs and preferences of everyone in your house. Make a list. Spend one week together trying to be mindful of each other’s needs and wants. Talk about the effects this experiment has on your family.
TALK ABOUT IT!
Here are some discussion points to help you talk about RESPECT with your child:
- What do you think it means to be respectful and why is it important?
- What are some ways you can be more respectful at home, at school, and in the community?
- Are there any ways that you would like me to be more respectful to you?
- What are some reasons it can be hard to be respectful?
