August POWerful Word – TEAMWORK – Week 1

When you think of the word “teamwork”– what comes to mind? Think of all the different teams you’ve been on at home, school, and out in the community. Tell us the types of teams you’ve been part of over the last few years. People have said that T.E.A.M. stands for “Together Everyone Achieves More”– what do you think they mean by that? A team IS about working together, making the job easier, and having fun! Someone once said “there is no ‘I’ in team” what do you think that means? A team is NOT about one person– it’s about the whole team. We need to cooperate. What’s stronger– the power of “me” or the power of “we?” The power of we! Let’s repeat that: The Power of We! When people work together, they share the work and use their strengths. A team works better when it works together (repeat)! The powerful word of the month is teamwork which means “working together as a group to achieve a common goal.”

If you have time: What are your favorite teams– either ones you’ve been on or ones that you love to cheer for during the season? Why is that team your favorite?
