Our focus this week will be on the character strength of Humor.

Humor is a sense of playfulness and lightness. It is a way of looking at and describing the world that brings laughter to people. A person with the strength of humor is skilled at seeing at the funny side of things, bringing smiles and laughter to others, and identifying and communicating the absurdities in life. People with this strength don’t specifically need to be joke tellers, although many are.

The parent virtue for the Humor is Transcendence. These strengths allow people to rise above their troubles and find meaning in the larger universe. Strengths of transcendence are appreciation of beauty and excellence, connection/purpose, gratitude, hope/optimism, and humor.

Please use these quotes, video links, and character card to host conversations with your child about the character strength.

"I love making people laugh. And I love laughing." ~Kevin Hart

Remote Learning Resources

The Wake County Public School System believes that every student, each day, deserves access to rigorous, relevant and engaging learning opportunities. While the current circumstances that we are facing as a community, both locally and globally, are challenging and uncertain, we remain committed to this core belief.

Although we can never replace the value of the teacher-student interaction in the classroom, the Wake County Public School System will provide instructional resources and extension activities that will help students remain engaged in learning while schools are closed. These resources and opportunities will continue to evolve and grow over the course of any extended school closure.
