November POWerful Word – CITIZENSHIP – Week 3
Part of being a good citizen and showing citizenship is taking care of our community– everyone in it and everything around it. After all, if we don’t take care of our home, school, and community who will? We are all part of a community team. We need to be responsible and make sure to help keep common spaces clean, healthy and nice for everyone. So– how do we keep our space clean, healthy & nice for everyone (1) at home (i.e. clean up mess) (2) at school (i.e. wash hands, put away what we use) (3) here in class (i.e. put away equipment, stay home if sick, call when late) (4) in the community (i.e. cough into elbow, don’t litter)? Why can’t you just leave a mess for someone else? Can “kids” really be helpful? Part of being a leader means taking care of your own mess and your own things. How can you help to lead the way to citizenship around our community?
If you have time: Read Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out (Shel Silverstein) OR imagine what can happen if everyone litters!
