Character Traits

Students at our school learn about and try to live by five character traits:
beneficence - being kind to others
empathy - understanding how others are feeling and seeing things from their perspective
integrity - doing the right thing even when no one is watching
stewardship - take care of our world and our place in it
perseverance - continuing to try even when things are challenging

We have read several books about each trait to help us understand them better. You can see the titles of some of them in the pictures below.

Common questions that I ask during our closing circle each day is: How did you show a character trait today? or Did you see someone else show a character trait today? You could ask these same questions at home, too.

Last week, we drew our self-portraits. We noticed lots of similarities and differences in our hair, eyes and skin. We talked about how we were different on the outside in some ways but the same on the inside in some ways. We are crew. (Click on the picture to see a larger version.)
