RECOGNIZING OTHERS’ STRENGTHS:
It’s important for our children to know what their own strengths are and how they can use those talents to enrich their lives and positively impact others. Part of being socially aware is recognizing the strengths of others as well. One of the rewards of living in a community is that each person brings their own experiences and talents to benefit the whole group.
Instead of being jealous of other people’s gifts, or bragging that they are better than someone else, children can learn to identify the strengths of their classmates, family members, and friends. Knowing what your friends do well and being able to go to them for help in those areas is something that leaders do.
This week the Puppet Pals are seeking help in a few areas and thinking of friends, whose particular strengths could help them. Once your children watch the videos, they can pinpoint their own friends’ strong characteristics and how they might go to them for help. You can use the poster to guide those conversations.
This week of lessons includes four scenario videos that you can watch with your students Monday through Thursday with follow-up questions for class discussions. The bonus video for Friday is Farmer McDonald who helps Queenie learn to delegate work instead of trying to do everything herself.
This week also includes a Simple Summary video in Spanish. This allows Spanish-speaking classes to review the target skill of the week in one simple Spanish video.
