Discipline With Purpose

Throughout the second grade year the students and I will spend time studying some self-discipline skills that will help students function well with others and help them understand the expectations of parents, teachers, and other students.  A better understanding of expectations leads to a more comfortable learning environment for the students.  Most of the time when there are disruptions or disagreements among people, it's because expectations are not being met.  The skills are also connected to people or narratives found in Scripture, so the strengthening of faith is also an element of this program.

 

 

Cooperation

Cooperation means to act or work with others for mutual benefit.  We practice that in second grade when we accept that roles differ depending upon the taks that needs to be done.

 

When we cooperate we must:

  • Recognize a job is to be done.
  • Determine the goal
  • Agree on the strategy and assign tasks to each member.
  • Complete your share of the task in a designated time.
  • Evaluate the groups effectiveness.
  • Strategize and make modifications for the next cooperative exercise.

The story from Scripture of the overwhelming catch of fish from Luke 5:1-11 is our good example.

For truly I say to you, If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there, and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.'
