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.



Reasons for Rules

Skills are not rules.

You cannot break a skill.

You can only learn to do it better!


We have three basic rules in second grade:

  • Respect (Love) God
  • Respect (Love) People
  • Respect (Love) Property

As the children go through all the "Don't" rules they will begin to see that all those rules can fall under the three positive rules listed here.

Jesus' obedience to His Father's will found in Luke 2 is our example of "Reasons for Rules".
