It has been a great week with the kids, as we have been discussing what it means to do good works. I love to hear the stories the kids share at Wrap-Up at the end of the day, about how they let someone else use the hula-hoop at recess, or gave someone the good seat in the classroom! They are learning how to consider the needs of others, and it is such a joy to see them put that into practice here at school.
During this review week of our two themes (Good Works, and Listen to and Obey your parents and teachers) I have also introduced the idea of being 'wise' versus being 'foolish'. The students have learned that a really wise person is one who isn't afraid to ask questions, to be wrong, or to be corrected- because that is part of learning! The Bible teaches that we should love discipline, so a wise student will welcome correction cheerfully and with humility. A foolish person is someone who refuses to admit if they've made a mistake or don't know something.
