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.
We all, most likely, need a little work in this skill. Definitely second graders could learn to improve this skill. We'll be looking at prayer, of course, but also:
