Our Value of the month is ‘patience’. In class and during assembly time we will be discussing what it means to have patience. Some of the ways that we can show patience is:
At home, you can discuss the following:
-How does it make you feel when you have to wait for something?
- How do you think it would make someone feel if you interrupt them and not wait your turn?
-Why should you be patient?
- What would happen if no one had patience?

Life Is Patience
Read a story
The ugly Ducking- When you have to wait to be beautiful. Things do not always happen overnight.
How to catch a star- Things take time if you really want them to happen.
Take that- Patience
What can I do at home?
-Save up for something. Encourage your child to put money aside and wait for something they really want.
-When your child asks for the TV- encourage them to do their reading or homework first. Help them to learn they have to wait for these activities.
-Play a game as a family. Encourage your child to wait for their turn during the game and discuss that it is important to wait our turn so everyone can play and have fun.
