Positive Action

Our first graders will be starting Unit 5, Telling the Truth. We will be learning about getting along with ourselves by using positive actions for telling ourselves the truth. When we tell ourselves the truth, we are being honest with ourselves and we feel good about ourselves. Truth is a very important concept that means something you can count on. You can reinforce this concept at home by encouraging your child to talk to you about what they are learning each day.
