This month, we have learned the importance of sharing. The character trait for the month of November is “Honesty.” We define honesty as telling the truth, and doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. The weekly character challenges of the month are:
- Show honesty by admitting if you did something wrong.
- Show honesty by retelling a story exactly how it happened without adding any details.
- Show honesty by sharing information about others that you only know for a fact to be true.
- Show honesty by being truthful in what you say and do.
