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.

 

 

Following Instructions

Noah would be our great example from Scripture for Following Instructions.  He had to remember all the instructions God game him for building the ark.

Genesis 6

 

When we need to follow instructions we should first be able to Listen well.  Then, we should know these three things:

1. WHAT to do.

2. HOW to do it.

3. See the relationship between the TASK and OURSELVES.

 

We should never give second graders more than three instructions at one time.  And children should be able to repeat instructions before starting.

 

 

Mission Statement

A family growing together, learning God's Word, serving our neighbor to witness Christ's love

2021/2022 School Theme

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.'

Matthew 17:20
