August POWerful Word – COOPERATION – Week 1

Each one of us is part of different groups that need to cooperate each day. Let’s think of each one of these groups like “teams” that need to work together in order to get things done. For example, our family works like a team at home and our classrooms work like teams at school. Let’s think of our family team first. How do you cooperate to help your family keep everyone safe and keep the home clean and organized? Do you have specific chores to do? What would happen if nobody cooperated and did their chores? We need to cooperate with our family if we are going to get things done and have more fun at home! We also have to cooperate with our “team” at school. How do people at school need to cooperate to make school safe and fair for everyone? What would happen if they didn’t? Cooperation is important for everyone!

If you have time: How does the community cooperate as a team to keep it clean and safe for everyone? Yes!
